The Tektronix 8550 is a part of the 8000 MDL Series Microcomputer development labs platform introduced in 1981.

The 8550 is a self contained microcomputer development lab that gives complete support to one user at a time. Important features of the 8550 include a flexible filing system that easily adapts to any type of software project, high level language and assembly support with symbolic debugging for both 8-bit and 16-bit chips, real-time emulation to install developed software in the prototype hardware, and a powerful set of real-time debugging tools, including the Trigger Trace Analyzer for 8-bit and 16-bit designs, and the Real-Time Prototype Analyzer for 8-bit designs.

The 8550 as a whole is made up of two components, the 8301 Micro Processor Development Unit and the 8501 Data management unit featuring two floppy drives
