HP Saturn (microprocessor)
The Saturn family of microprocessors was developed by Hewlett-Packard in the 1980s for programmable scientific calculators/microcomputers. The original Saturn chipset was first used in the HP-71B hand-held BASIC computer, introduced in 1984. Later models of the family powered the popular HP-48 series of calculators, among others. The replacement for the HP-48, the HP-49 series initially used the Saturn CPU, but starting with the HP-49g+ model the calculators use ARM CPUs that emulates the Saturn architecture.
Famous quotes containing the word saturn:
“It is marvelous indeed to watch on television the rings of Saturn close; and to speculate on what we may yet find at galaxys edge. But in the process, we have lost the human element; not to mention the high hope of those quaint days when flight would create one world. Instead of one world, we have star wars, and a future in which dumb dented human toys will drift mindlessly about the cosmos long after our small planets dead.”
—Gore Vidal (b. 1925)
