Intelligent multi-user board specialist Computone Systems Inc has signed an agreement to acquire Intellicom Corp through an exchange of shares. Computone’s principal product is the ATvantage series of boards which can support up to 32 users when fitted into an IBM Personal AT. Intellicom was formed as a breakaway company in 1986 and Computone reckons its return to the fold makes the company the largest serial inputoutput board manufacturer in the US. The two product lines are compatible and combine into a broad range, say the company. It says that future products will allow the clustering of up to 64 terminals onto a 80386 machine, and that boards will soon be available for the IBM PS/2 and RT Personal ranges. In the UK Computone’s products are distributed by Tetra Business Systems Ltd’s Tamarisk division.
