It is noted that the computing capabilities of a combination of a digital computer and an analog computer connected by a communications unit considerably exceed the capabilities of the digital and analog devices taken separately. This combination is especially valuable for small computer centers which include one or two Ural-type limited speed digital computers or a Minsk and several MN-7 type or MNB analog computers. It is reported that the Problems Laboratory of Automation and Telemechanics and the computer center of the Moscow Power Institute have developed and constructed a combined computer system based on the Minsk-11 computer and an MNB type analog computer, using a universal connecting unit. A description of the individual segments of the system is presented.
