Abstract:

This report serves as an introduction to the Computer Data Format Translator. The CDFT performs three basic types of information translations computer tape to computer tape, analog to computer format, and straight binary to computer format. Computer format is the format of either Univac or IBM. The variations of each translation which provide the 14 major operation modes of the unit are discussed. The principles of operation and sample patch board connections are given. Detailed block layouts and output tape formats have been provided for the reader to follow the path of the data through the system. Author
