    Wednesday, January 14, 2009 - 01:37 PM, (5699 Reads)

    At the February (4th) meeting of the Wakefield RISCOS Computer Club we have special guest, Professor Steve Furber (CBE); one of the principal designers of the ARM 32-bit RISC microprocessor and the BBC Micro.

    Steve visited the RISC OS North West User Group in May last year and kindly agreed to fit Wakefield into his busy schedule.

    The talk will cover the history of Acorn and the time leading up to development of the ARM processor, as well as detail about current activity that Steve and the Advanced Processor Technologies Group are undertaking at Manchester University.

    More information about Professor Furber and the Advanced Processor Technologies Group can be found here and here.

    Also see his Wikipedia entry and the article at the BBC news site here. Entry to the event is free to WROCC members and visitors are welcome, although there is a fee of £2 for non-members. The club meets at 7:45pm in the West Yorkshire Sports and Social Club every 1st Wednesday of the month.

    The address is:
    Sandal Hall Close,
    Off Walton Lane,
    West Yorkshire,
    WF2 6ER
