INTERGRAPH ENHANCES ATTRACTIONS OF ITS CLIPPER CHIP SET

Intergraph Corp’s Clipper Advanced Processor Division in Palo Alto is to make the Clipper set available as its four component chips – CPU with on-chip floating point, two Cache/Memory Management Units and a high-frequency clock in pin grid arrays at up to 30MHz: the parts were previously available only preassembled on a 3 by 4.5 circuit card. The CPU part is also available in a 33MHz surface-mount gull wing package. The 30MHz set is $610 for 1,000-up with volume in the third quarter. The company also announced Network File System and TCP/IP for the Clipper, as integral parts of the Clix implementation of Unix. TCP/IP from Lachman Associates Inc includes support for BSD 4.2 and 4.3 sockets. And Intergraph has a software development system for the Clipper, providing a low-cost environment for software designers to develop and debug software. Coming in a 12 by 12 by 15 desktop unit that outperforms a DEC VAX 8600, it has 8Mb memory, 156Mb disk, Ethernet, SCSI, parallel and three serial ports, Clix and C and will be available in May for $1,950.
