These pages are dedicated to the Texas Instruments TI-99/4A home computer. They contain mainly technical information on the various processors and memory chips found in the console, on peripheral cards and cartridges and on additional hardware. This site is currently hosted by the University of Geneva, Switzerland. It used to be hosted by Stanford, then the University of Sheffeild, but this changed when I moved back to my hometown. Now folks, I hate to brag,but I must admit that it feels good to be recognized by one's peers.
In 1981 Texas Instruments released TI99/4, the first series of 16-bit home computers. The computer has a Texas Instruments TMS9900 processor running at 3MHz. 16kB of 8-bit normal dynamic RAM used (by design) for graphics purposes is placed on a 8-bit bus and is significantly slower.
Embarrassing Failure: Texas Instruments had high hopes for its TI 99/4, which debuted in 1979, and the follow-on 99/4A. Despite being the world’s first 16-bit home computer, the 99/4, like the microprocessor on which it was based, was a dog. Intended to satisfy two very different markets, the 99/4 and 99/4A served neither one well. Unsurprisingly, initial sales were weak. Meanwhile, most third-party software developers remained reluctant to invest in programs for the 99/4A. As demand for the 99/4A soared, TI initiated a crash program to ramp up production. But it couldn’t compete with Commodore, which had a low-cost design and continued to lower the prices for its computers even further. Just as TI’s production output took off, demand for the 99/4A began to fade.
The Texas Instrument TI 99/4A was a very succesful computer. A large number ROM cartridges (36 KB each) were developped for this computer, as the popular Extended Basic One item of note is that the bus architecture for the Peripheral Expansion box (PE) was the basis for the NuBus used in the later Macintosh computers.
