If anyone is interested in helping me to put the OLD Enterprise64/128 into VHDL code so it can be run on an Altera DE0 board or even on a STRATIX ASIC chip... making a single chip ENTERPRISE 128K plus, running at 25MHz plus !!!!

Then email me at

I used to work for Welwyn Electric in Bedlington, Northumberland UK. Our systems department built the Elan Enterprise here in the UK around 1983 as I remember. There were hundreds quarantined in our store when the buyer went bust! Eventually lots were sold to employees at a cheap price... I used to test them and remember the NICK $ DAVE chips that were the type specific ASICS in the Enterprise. I have a boxed as new 64 here and schematics!!!

Sunday 3rd July 2011

Where can I get schematics, service manuals , Technical documents ??? Can anyone help.... please leave a message.....

It also was shipped with special tape recorder witch coul be remotely controllel from a computer by second wire with some kind of microjack. It had 2 type recorder interfaces (standard JACK) and 2 remote interfaces (that microjack).

sorry for bad English.

Does anyone know where to get technical info on the Enterprise. Service manuals, schematics etc ???

Has anyone tried putting the Enterprise onto a FPGA (field programmable Gate Array) or CPLD/ASIC to produce a single chip version. i.e. an Enterprise 128 on a single chip ??

It''s been done for other old machines!!!

I worked as a developer for a number of Enterprise titles for about 18 months prior to it's release. I actually had two Enterprise's! One would do 80 column and the other high res graphics. I think they were having problems with the video chip.

Tim from London. Did I meet with you and provide you with copies of the assembler and 3d starstrike (spectrum conversion) many many years ago in London? I was working for DK'tronics, CDS software and Intelligent Software at the time.

I won an Enterprise 64 from a magazine competition- the month it was supposed to be released. It eventaually arrived after several months of my patient chasing, so I probably had one of the first machines- but by then I was much more into BBC machines. It WAS a nice BASIC with some
clever tweaks. In my time I dragged my school into supporting my first 1802 homebrew, Commodore PET, BBC B, Atari ST and Acorn Archimedes- they
eventually went for the unimaginative and expensive PC! Ho hum....

Wow... so the Elan Enterprise really exists??? I remember getting a promotional brochure for one when I was still at school - it looked fantastic, miles ahead of anything else on the market at the time. But alas that was the last I heard of it - I presumed it never made it into production. I'd love to see any info / pictures of it if anyone has anything. Regards, Mike.

I had one of these in 1989-1995. Nice to see familiar names. I wrote a lot of stuff, but the forum software doesn't like Safari, so I can't be bothered retyping it. I've got another 128 and EXDOS, plus a 'FLAN' motherboard which must be early production or pre-production....

Enterprise is still going strong, hopefully will be getting more info and a web site ASAP, If not search for the 'Enterprise Depository' and there you will find a bit more. Regards Russ P.

Just came across this page. I used to run the Magazine for the User group "Private Enterprise". Any body remember it.

BTW it was a great machine, Ahead of its time at conception, which was one of the reasons it failed, they could not make the main Chips Nick and Dave. They did at the time have the most transistors in one device. The delay in getting it to work then deciding once they did perfect it, to move production to Europe, took so long that the likes of the Amstrad filled got there first.

I even had a Mouse and software on sale for it, any body remember it.

What was the spec of the Elan? I wanted one but
parents couldn't afford it. Ended up with an Electron
instead, which was great, though the Elan would have
been nicer perhaps. There's an Elan on Ebay UK just
now, but it's for 200 UKP! Ouch. Does anyone know
how many were made? Was there just one version?
There don't seem to be too many pages on the net
about the machine.

HI, i used to have an Enterprise 64 with the mouse and speech synthesiser!!, i gave it to my brother (boxed) years ago, who gave it away for nothing, i could have killed him. Great machine.

I have just got my hands on an Enterprise 64, but I only have the machine. I would love to buy some software and hardware to it, if anyone has some they would sell.

One of the best computers I ever owned! Trying to track down a mate of mine - lent him my Enterprise 128 + 720K DD about 10 years ago! Still got the tecnical manual kicking around here somewhere.... ;-)

I want to buy an Enterprise.

Will pay a fair price.

Any ideas (or offers).

Elan Enterprise 64/128 would have been a great success if it had been released earlier! I think it was one of the first home computers featuring stereo sound... It had a great and powerful ANSI basic (which even formatted the code according to loops and subroutines) with multimedia functions and even control of i/o. (Compared with the commodore basic that consisted of 90% "poke" :-)
