Cassia Chess Mate, (Toytronic Chess Electronics, CXG Computachess I)
a dedicated chess computer released in 1979 by Hong Kong based manufacturer Cassia by Eric White and Ken Cohen, forerunner of White and Allcock, the computer also shipped as Toytronic Chess Electronics [1] [2]. Cassia Chess Mate and relatives, such as the CXG Computachess I in 1981 were clones of Ron Nelson's Fidelity Chess Challenger 10 [3] [4]. While the CXG Computachess I was stopped from shipping into the US, it seems the Chess Mate was further shipped to Europe [5], according to Ron Nelson, with an operating manual logo looking like the CXG Computachess one [6].
