The LINC (Laboratory Instrument Computer) was designed by Wesley A. Clark and Charles E. Molnar at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory in 1962, assisted by a team of approximately a dozen people under Clark's leadership. Over the years, nearly 100 LINCs were built for use in medical research before the design was absorbed into the DEC PDP-12.
