COMPATIBILITY OF DIGITAL COMPUTERS IN A PARTICULAR COMPUTING COMPLEX,
FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY DIV WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Pagination or Media Count:
The machine compatibility considered includes uniform programming, easy recoding of one machine program into the languages of the other machines of the complex, the selection of registers of the various machines and the recoding of words in one format into words of another format, and the management and exchange of information between the machines in the complex. Problems involved depend largely on the cycling speeds of the arithmetic units, operational memories, input-output units, the structures of the functional algorithms, and system configurations in the light of machine compatibility. The complex studied consists of digital computers and digital-incremental machines. The organization of the various parts of the system to solve various problems is considered in detail.
