Schachcomputer SC 1,
VEB Funkwerk Erfurt's first dedicated chess computer species from 1981, build in low quantities of only about 12 to 20 pieces. The SC 1 was merely a prototype kind of a chess computer, to test the performance of their own Z80 clone, the U880 8-bit processor [1] . The program wasn't yet an own development [2], but a program from the "Enemy of the people", a plain copy of Ron Nelson's program of a Chess Challenger manufactured by Fidelity Electronics [3]. Remarkably, its successor, the SC 2, which was produced in higher quantities and exported to the capitalistic "First World" to merit foreign exchanges, still was a slightly modified Ron Nelson program [4][5].
