Abstract:

The Institute of Cybernetics of the Academy of Sciences UkrSSR has designed a program-interrupt unit for use with the Minsk-2 and Minsk-22 computer magnetic tape memory. The program-interrupt unit coordinates the exchange of information between the arithmetic unit and various memory types whose maximum waiting times differ into maximum time during which information may be stored in a memory unit without loss. Since the waiting time for magnetic tape memory is practically infinite and of other units is as the order of tens or hundreds of milliseconds, it is most expedient to interrupt during magnetic tape memory access with subsequent unconditional transfer back to the tape memory. The program and hardware using standard Minsk-2 computer circuits required for this function are described. Author
