Abstract

Two controller systems, an interprocessor controller system and a card reader controller system, have been designed and constructed to enable the sharing of valuable peripheral devices between two minicomputer systems, the Microdata 1600/30 and the Interdata Model 4. A number of design alternatives were examined. The project is accomplished under severe limitation on budget as well as laboratory facilities. A number of software packages have been developed for each of the controller systems. An analysis of the controller systems has been made and the strengths and weaknesses noted.
