Abstract:

Computers and DisplaysControls for avionics systems are discussed primarily from a technology standpoint. The current state of the art is reviewed, current research developments are pointed out and prediction of when these developments will be incorporated into avionic systems is given. With respect to computers, the following major categories are assessed a Logic, b Memory, c Computer Organization, d AnalogDigital Conversion. Emphasis is placed on the impact of batch fabrication to these areas. With respect to Displays Controls the following major categories are reviewed a CRTs, b scan Conversion, c Color, d AnalogDigital Techniques for range scaling and symbol generation, e Electroluminescence. A summary chart projecting state of the art for computers and displayscontrols to the 1975 period is presented at the end of the report.
