A laboratory facility is described that provides for the experimental study of digital control systems. The activities of the laboratory are designed to permit experiments in data conversion, data acquisition, hybrid system simulation, computer control of typical physical processes, and binary and decimal data transfer between a digital computer and peripheral equipment. The main facility of the laboratory is a PDP-8 computer, a small general-purpose computer. The laboratory program is part of an educational program in the study of discrete systems and computer control system. This program is also briefly described.
