This is the successor to the SHARP
PC‑1500A. It is basically two computers in one. One with a multi-line
display and a Z‑80 compatible microprocessor, and to implement
compatibility with the SHARP
PC‑1500A it has a second microprocessor, the LH‑5803, to run
PC‑1500 code, even machine code.
From its manual:
As with the SHARP PC‑1500A, there is a lot of good technical information on this pocket computer my SHARP such as a Service Manual and an excellent Technical Reference Manual full of information on the hardware side of this pocket computer and on machine language programming, including a list of ROM addresses for specific functions. I do wonder how my life would have been had I been in possession of this beauty instead of the TRS‑80 PC‑2. I hope to one day find some time to delve deeper into this pocket computer's abilities. I'm sure it is extremely powerful and versatile.
