Pagination or Media Count:
This report discusses the design and use of equipment built for data communication to and from a PDP-8 through a 201A data set. The purpose of the data communication interface is to allow a PDP-8 to send and receive digital data through a 201A data set in half-duplex mode. Basic design objectives and decisions are described first. A brief overall system description together with a sketch of a data format scheme and programming considerations is followed by a detailed description of the interface logic.
