In contrast to the crude analog-digital combinations of the 1960's, today's hybrids are true multiprocessors supported by realtime operating systems. Their solid-state analog computing elements loaded digitally in microseconds, together with their equation-oriented compilers, provide efficient, automatic setup and high productivity. Teamed with flexible, low-cost alphanumeric/graphic displays, modern hybrids are being applied over the full spectrum of scientific and engineering studies. Since the average hybrid system has an equivalent digital processing speed of over 10 million operations per second, at less than one-tenth the cost of large digital data processors, typical users realize cost savings of over 100/1.
