Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Elektronika BK was a series of 16-bit PDP-11-compatible Soviet home computers developed by NPO Scientific Center, the leading Soviet microcomputer design team at the time. It was also responsible for the more powerful UKNC and DVK micros. First released in 1985, they were based on the 1801 1 and were the only "official" Soviet home computer design in mass production. They initially sold for about 600-650 rubles. This was expensive, but marginally affordable, so they became one of the most popular home computer models in the Soviet Union despite numerous problems. Later, when that price edge was eclipsed by cheaper ZX Spectrum clones, their powerful CPU and straightforward, easy to program design made them popular as demo machines. BK is a Russian abbreviation which stands for " " -- domestic computer. It was also for a short time used as cash register, for example, in the State Universal Store.show more
