Edson de Castro (born 1938)[1] is a computer engineer perhaps best known for designing the Data General Nova series of computers.[2]

De Castro was founder and CEO of Data General Corporation throughout the 1970s, the 1980s and into the 1990s when he was replaced by Ronald L Skates, a former Price Waterhouse Coopers partner. He also was the project manager in charge of developing the PDP-8 mini computer at Digital Equipment Corporation, before leaving to form Data General Corporation.[citation needed]
