MOSTEK 1979 Microcomputer Data Book

Presented here is an unpreserved book published in June 1979, by Mostek Corporation.

It covers general information, product specifications for a range of chips such as MD-XPU1, Z80 and many more.

This book is ~700mb in size and has been scanned for the best resolution and readability.  This was achieved by scanning in greyscale and dropping out the page to be white and text to be black, taking care to not crush the shadows too much.

The result was a large PDF however the book is in fact 851 pages.  Various compression techniques were tested but ultimately the readability was affect.  Enjoy this high quality PDF with actual numbered pages that match the book.
