The PDP-8 was a 12-bit minicomputer produced by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC). It was the first commercially successful minicomputer, with over 50,000 examples being sold over the model's lifetime. Its basic design followed the pioneering LINC but had a smaller instruction set, which was an expanded version of the PDP-5 instruction set. Similar machines from DEC were the PDP-12 which was a modernized version of the PDP-8 and LINC concepts, and the PDP-14 industrial controller system.
