Processor Technology Sol Terminal Computer
Late 1970s
Model 20

Based on the Intel 8080 microprocessor, this machine was one of the earliest to include a keyboard interface and support circuitry for full implementation of every 8080 function. The real wood (walnut) sides and deep blue case made a distinctive look.

The SOL-20 was popular among the growing number of home-based computer enthusiasts, especially because Lee Felsenstein, the moderator of the original Homebrew Computer Club, was the designer of its circuits. Processor Technology was one of several garage-based businesses that had a flash of success in the volatile economy of Silicon Valley.
