From the collection Dr. David P. Chandler on the site http://papaintellivision.com/
The documents herein regard the Mattel Electronics Intellivision project ranging from its inception in 1977 until the end of Chandler's involvement with the company in 1983.
These documents relate to the final contract agreement between GI and Mattel. The agreement itself, pages 27-37, dates to June 29th 1978 and describes the system as the “Intel Vision”. Pages 1-23 detail revisions and parts list, many of them reprinted from earlier documents. Pages 24-25 summarizes a meeting held on October 24th regarding a revision of terms to the GI contract. Page 26, dated November 13th 1978, projects the highly sought after FCC submission date as December 15th 1978 with the earliest possible date being 8 days prior. Page 38, from December 1st 1978, gives a small revision to the GI contract specifications. Pages 39-42 describe yet another emergency back-up plan for the Winter 1979 CES from December 4th 1978.
Pages 43-44 entail yet more difficulties on General Instrument's side of readying the system, from December 14th 1978, but assure Mattel they will have the product ready for CES. Page 45 from December 20th 1979 gives an update on Radofin's progress with the PAL version of the system and gives a projected completion for the General Instrument chipset as March 31st 1979. Page 46 contain handwritten notes by Chandler, titled “Mods to Video Logic Board Found by APH”. The final page contains a reprint of expected hardware completion dates.
