NEAC System 100 becomes "Heritage of Information Processing Technology" by Information Processing Society of Japan - 4th machine in KCG Museum

4th aircraft line at KCG Museum

NEAC System 100" manufactured by NEC Corporation (NEC), which is preserved and exhibited at the KCG Archives, was selected by the Information Processing Society of Japan (Chairman: Kazuo Furukawa) as a "Certified Equipment" of the "Heritage of Information Processing Technology". On March 6, 2011, at the 74th National Convention of the Society held at the Gokusho Campus of Nagoya Institute of Technology (Gokusho-cho, Showa-ku, Nagoya), Mr. Wataru Hasegawa, Chairman of KCGI and KCG, received the certificate.This is the fourth machine from KCG following "TOSBAC-3400" and "OKITAC 4300C System", which received the first certification in Japan in 2008, and "NEAC-2206" in 2010.

The NEAC System 100 was an early office computer released by NEC in 1973, and was the first computer of this level in Japan to be equipped with a communication control function, enabling slip processing, batch processing, and online processing.At that time, it was used as an excellent terminal computer.It is stored and displayed at the new building of KCG Kyoto Ekimae School (KCGI Kyoto Ekimae Satellite).

The Kyoto College of Graduate Studies for Informatics and Kyoto Computer Gakuin have preserved and exhibited past computers, etc. that have been used in education, practical training and research for about 50 years as KCG Museum.In 2008, the KCG Museum was recognized as the first "Distributed Computer Museum" in Japan by the Information Processing Society of Japan.In order to pass on the technology that supported Japan's rapid economic growth to the next generation, the university is planning to develop the Kyoto Station School into a "computer museum" and have it widely used as a place for research and education. We are calling for support and cooperation from the national government, Kyoto Prefecture, Kyoto City, academic societies, educational circles, businesses and other related parties.
