Tiki 100

Tiki 100 was a desktop computer manufactured by Tiki Data of Oslo, Norway. Lauched in the spring of 1984 under the original name Kontiki 100, the computer was first and foremost intended for the emerging educational sector, especially for primary schools. Due to a dispute with Thor Heyerdahl, the name was later changed to Tiki 100.

The computer was based on the Zilog Z80 CPU, and featured:

Software included:

  • TIKO, a CP/M-compatible operating system
  • A version of the BBC BASIC interpreter
  • A COMAL interpreter

Later, an Intel 8088 based IBM PC compatible model running MSDOS was made, somewhat confusingly called Tiki 100 Rev.D. In addition to being PC compatible, it also contained a Z80 processor so that it could seamlessly run the original Tiki 100 software. The two processors shared the same bus, and the Z80 programs still ran under the 8088 operating system.
