The SM-4 (CM-4) was a PDP-11/40 compatible system, in the second half of the 1980s. It was very popular in science and technology. They were manufactured in the Soviet Union, Bulgaria and Hungary, beginning in 1979.

The standard configuration included 128 or 256 KB core memory, tape puncher, two RK-05 removable 2.5 MB disks and two RK-05F fixed disks, two TU-10 drives and Videoton VDT-340 terminals (VT52 non-compatible). The SM-4P processor operated at 800,000 operations per second.

The SM-series also included the SM-3, without floating point processing, similar to DEC's PDP 11/40 and 11/34 models. In early production, ferrite core memory was used. It operated at 200,000 operations per second.

Operating systems commonly used, included:

Similar models included the SM-1420, with semiconductor memory, and the SM-1600, a hybrid of the SM-1420 and the M-6000(?), a system produced in Minsk. The main producer was a Kiev-based factory in Ukraine.
