Revelation #1 [1] [2]

a dedicated chess computer system by Phoenix Chess Systems, developed by its founder and CEO Ruud Martin. While a prototype was introduced in 2006 [3], the Revelation was first shipped in June 2008 [4] and superseded by its successor Revelation II in 2013. The system features a sensory board, an XScale PXA255 32-bit processor at 500 MHz with 32 MiB of RAM, and firmware and chess engines in non-volatile flash memory. In 2009, the Revelation also appeared as module set for Mephisto boards [5].

A six button and OLED panel realize a menu-driven graphical user interface to configure and choose engines, and to control and indicate system modes and states. A wireless Bluetooth connection allows native engine or firmware updates, and due to the UCI server, also allows using the Revelation as dedicated user interface for UCI engines running on a PC.
