INTERGRAPH ENHANCES ATTRACTIONS OF ITS CLIPPER CHIP SET

By CBR Staff Writer

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.
