Hide information about Commodore

Commodore International is a US electronics company, founded as early as 1954 by Jack Tramiel.  It is commonly known as just Commodore, or Commodore Business Machines (the name of its Research & Design operation).

Originally making typewriters, the Company moved to calculators in the 1970s, and then computers.  Their first computer was the Commodore PET (1977), aimed at the business market.  The move into the home market was made in 1981, with the VIC-20, Commdore 64 and finally the Amiga in 1985.

Versions of the Amiga continued to be produced up to 1992, when Commodore International decided to move into the dedicated games console market with its CD32 console.

Over the years, Commodore released over 20 different computers and two games consoles.  This must be something of a record.

The company revived in 2005 after a few mergers with Yeahronimo Media Ventures Inc., SATXS Communications BV, and Tulip Computers, and had moved into making PC compatible computers.
