LOGYSTEM
ECRITEXT

We don't know much about this strange French computer. It was designed by Patrick Jossier, an award winning French designer, to be used as a word processing computer and only few were sold.

This computer was dedicated to word processing (with a 80*25 text resolution), had a 'hidden' CP/M OS launching the text processor at start. Main CPU was Z80/4MHz, the other Z80 was dedicated to keyboard/display, almost like an 'integrated terminal'.

This computer was 100% french made, from hardware to software (except for the OS).

The system pictured here is Logystem Ecritext 2

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

 

I worked with Patrick for several years at his home in Switzerland on several projects. The unit you describe was not only used for word processing but Patrick also used it for writing code and developing other programs. It was also used for programming eproms on new circuit boards that I would build for him. I lost touch with him many years ago, but if you have his number it would be great to catch up with him. regards John
