Abstract:

A relocating assembler and a linking loader have been programmed for the TX-2. To provide more convenient graphical facilities, a new Extended Graphic Subsystem has been written. Recent display hardware additions to TX-2 have included a color display, storage tubes, and a commercial ARDS console. Application program work on semiconductor mask design has continued, with current work at an 80 gatechip level. Initial exploratory work on a design data system has been studied. Application of the LX-1 microprocessor to vocoder and display control problems has been studied. Experimental systems for Interactive Computer-Mediated Animation and Real-Time Input saving have been completed. Performance measurements on the APEX system are being conducted and the data analyzed. A stand-alone circuit-testing terminal with a small computer is under development.
