A Seadata Model 12A cassette reader has been interfaced to an LSI 112 microcomputer in order to allow a quick-turnaround look at data. Many instruments in the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory use Seadata cassette recorders for data storage. Before deployment, the instruments must be tested and the data recorded on their test tapes must be inspected to insure the proper operation of the instrument. This phase of the pre-deployment test procedure has been sped up dramatically by using the LSI 112 to read, format, and print the test data. It should be emphasized that this system is intended primarily for use with test tapes where the total volume of data is less than 0.5 megabits. Author
