Abstract:

A device was developed for reading magnetic tapes recorded by WEEDRAM digitisers and transferring the recorded data into the interface Matching Unit of an Elliott 503 computer for analysis. The device also controls the operation of a digital incremental plotter, either indirectly by first recording the plotter instructions at high speed or directly from the computer. Author
