History and Trivia

Founded in 1969 by Manfred Hegener and Florian Glaser, Hegener & Glaser became at the beginning of the 80s synonyms of Chess Computer in Germany, with its series of Mephisto Chess Computers.

They produced a lot of different models, both as standalone Chess Computers and as Modules for the Mephisto Modular Series. The latter consisted of a chessboard with some expansion slots, able to contain different Modules.

The first Modules were produced around 1983 (MM I Series, based on a 1806 CPU at 8 MHz), and the production kept going until 1998 (Senator and Magellan Modules, based on SH7000 CPU at 16-20 MHz)

Mephisto III S Glasgow was introduced in 1984. It was programmed by Thomas Nietsche & Elmar Henne and it was the first Chess Computer by Hegener & Glaser based on a 16bit CPU.
