JANE the MicroVAX II is Here!

At long last JANE, a MicroVAX II companion to TARZAN, is ready!

JANE is a custom-built MicroVAX II computer.

For a console, JANE has a built-in LCD VGA display and uses the enclosures’ USB port to connect to a USB keyboard. This makes it possible to do work or just monitor JANE without a need for a separate terminal or terminal emulator.

JANE has a total of 7 fans, all of them silent, so she can be quietly placed and run anywhere.

Specifications and photos are below.
