Sheffield National Transputer Centre

Robert Jackson, Minister at the Department of Education and Science with special responsibility for higher education and science, opened the National Transputer Support Centre based at the Sheffield Science Park on 7 March 1987. The Centre provided a focus for work on the transputer: a superchip which promised a new generation of very fast, powerful computers operating around two hundred times faster than conventional micro-computers.
