1980s Vintage Computers

Hewlett-Packard Series 80 - 
Parts List

This list tries to include all the HP Series 80 items, plus a few accessories. I have tried to avoid putting HP part numbers elsewhere on the Series 80 pages as they are longwinded, but they are useful for reference and have come in handy. Please e-mail me with any corrections / additions. Note - I don't want or have all of these parts.

Most of this list is taken from the Hewlett Packard Series 80 Configuration Guide

Words in parentheses are for clarification.

Back to top.


Up to 6 ROMs plug into a ROM Drawer Module (82936A), or plug directly into the 9915 motherboard. Note some computers (eg HP-86B) have some ROMs already built in (and which cannot be removed either), so do not require the same plug-in ROM.

Disk drives

Disk drives connect via HP-IB (using the standard IEEE-488 connector except for the 9130A, which has a Centronics connector only used on the HP-86A). nb 9114A/B uses HP-IL (drive not supported by Series 80). 

Amigo protocol drives require the Mass Storage ROM, SS-80 protocol drives also require the Extended Mass Storage ROM. nb CS-80 protocol drives are not compatible with the Series 80 and so are not listed here.
