Abstract:

The study covers technological advancements on hybrid hardware and software, which makes it possible to develop an advanced hybrid computer system AHCS. These advances includes solid state switch matric using large scale integration LSI technology. The design will simplify programming languages for non-experts using the system. The study describes remote terminal and techniques for communicating between them and the central computer. The study brings out simulation payoffs including cost savings of hybrid over digital computing systems. A novel logic module design in the analog subsystem is described. Several novel operational techniques makes possible simultaneous asynchronous problems being run on the analog subsystem and dynamic relocation of the analogs components to reduce waiting time at the terminal to a minimum. Networks of the AHCS is described in some detail using low cost terminal and time-slicing methods. Software technology is described in detail, including compilers, allocations, schedules, file storage and protection, communication, operating systems, and on-line maintenance techniques.
