APOLLO ADDS 80386 CO-PROCESSOR FOR MS- DOS-UNIX WORKSTATIONS

By CBR Staff Writer

One of the less publicised announcements at Uniforum earlier this month was a joint marketing agreement between Apollo Computer Inc, Chelmsford, and Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Applied Reasoning Corp, which specialises in MS-DOS-compatible co processors. The deal means that Applied Reasoning’s PC-Elevator 386 board is now available for all Apollo personal workstations, allowing MS-DOS software to be run using the 80386 processor. The board gives video compatibility with personal computer graphics standards and supports Apollo’s interconnect software for network access and remote peripheral sharing. Previously, Apollo has offered software tools to run MS-DOS on its Motorola 68000 family workstations. According to Applied Reasoning marketing vice president Dan Scherlis, the co-processor approach gives users superior compatibility over single processor solutions, with double the compute power available for simultaneous MS-DOS and Unix operations. Although the company launched its first co procxessor accelerator board back in 1985, PC-Elevator is the first designed for the workstation market. No prices were given.
