Tiny Unix boards and systems manufacturer Tadpole Technology has source code licences from the new Unix System V.3 from both AT&T and Motorola. Tadpole will be using the Motorola V.3 version on its 68020-based boards, to be delivered in the second quarter of this year. The AT&T 3B2 licence will be used with a new line of products currently being developed by Tadpole to be announced later this year. The new products, which will include four new processors, will be based on 32-bit processors, and may include ones based on the high-performance Fairchild Clipper chip-set as well as the AT&T 32200. Tadpole has hitherto used the Uniplus+ version V.2 from Root Computers and will retain it on its existing 68010 and 68020 products. The Cambridge company says it bought source licences to gain independence from Unix software suppliers, and it intends to carry out its own ports in the future.
