TechLAN - Positronika

Created by the Dutch company Positronika in 1984. The network was intended for connecting multiple PDP-11's together for use in automated measuring equipment.

In an era where Ethernet did not exist and IEEE-488 was quite new, TechLAN was ahead of its time because most people had never heard of a "network" and did not know what to use it for.

Techlan was discontinued in 1987. Positronika focussed on LAN's instead which at that time was a booming market. Positronika no longer exists.
