Milestones in the seventies
ECMAT - the first Danish microcomputer
DELTA builds the first Danish microcomputer, ECMAT, the same year as Intel sends the first micro processor on the Danish market. ECMAT helped many companies using microcomputers.
A 2 kilobit magnetic core memory from 1974 can store about four lines of standard text. A 32-GB USB memory stick can store up to 32,000 normal books with text. The reading/writing time is 100 to 1,000 times faster, and the memory costs much less and is much more reliable. The wiring circuit of the magnetic core memory was installed by hand. DELTA started to work with testing integrated circuits in the mid-1970s, which subsequently also included component design. The four ASIC prototypes date from the late 1980s and were developed by DELTA, and the 25 wafers with chips were developed by DELTA in the early 1990s.
DELTA developed a special test program to be used in type approvals of maritime electronics.
