The first in DEC's series of miniaturised PDP-8 computers based on the Intersil 6120 [Harris 6120?] microprocessor and dedicated to wordprocessing. The DECmate was DEC's original competition for the IBM PC.

It was a very limted model, no EAE option was available, memory was 32 Kwords. It used the RX02 8" dual floppy drive. Options were the DP278-A and -B communication ports and RL278: 1 to 4 RL02 cartridge disk drives.
