Data Acquisition and Real-Time Systems.
Lawrence, D. E., Ed.; Fenwick, P. M., Ed.
The first group of papers starts with a tutorial paper which surveys the methods used in data acquisition systems. Other papers in this group describe: (1) some problems involved in the computer acquisition of high-speed randomly-occurring data and the protection of this data from accidental corruption, (2) an input/output bus to allow an IBM 360/50 to handle specialized small peripheral devices and (3) a system which uses post office lines to link computing centers in four states to a central installation. The next group of three papers discusses programming problems. This is followed by two papers dealing with the processing of data which is primarily pictorial in form. The use of computers in control applications is discussed in the tutorial paper which introduces the last group of papers. An interesting feature of the papers is the extent to which high-level languages are used in areas which are normally regarded as the domain of the assembler language programmer. (Author/NH)
