Encore

(Encore Real Time Computing, Inc., Melbourne, FL, www.encore.com) A computer company founded as Encore Computer Corporation in 1983 that specialized in real-time systems. Encore was known for its unique Reflective Memory channel, a high-speed interconnect for up to 255 systems. Encore products stemmed back to Systems Engineering Labs (SEL), founded in 1961. SEL became a division of Gould, which was acquired by Encore in 1989.

Encore also had offered a line of mainframe storage products, which were sold to Sun in 1997. One year later, after the sale of its business applications to Gores Technology, the company was renamed Encore Real Time Computing. In 2002, Encore was acquired by Compro, Melbourne, FL (www.compro.net).
