The electronics and computer engineering programs at the University of Southern Mississippi offer two process control courses. One is based on classical continuous domain techniques while the other utilizes the domain. Historically, Distributed Process (DPC) tasks have required main-frame or mini-computers, usually with proprietary software. Our experience with an LC-4 Controller (micro-computer) which has been effectively utilized in the discrete control course for DPC is described. Other than the host personal computer (PC), the system comprises OPTO 22 distributed controllers connected by an Optomux network. The system's extended features have a modest cost ($8000.00 for a limited number of controllers) making it attractive for instructional use
