    A dual-port 0.25-Mbytes (64 K×32 bits) FASTBUS memory module is described which implements a large set of functions on the Crate Port, while the Cable Port is mainly used for data transfers. Both linear and circular FIFO-like modes are software-selectable. Two pointers are available for write and read operations, respectively. The memory, successfully used to test the L3 event builders, exhi... View full abstract»

    General topics for consideration when designing expert display systems and nuclear power plant control room displays are summarized. A system is proposed in which the display of segments (a combined series of graphic primitives or a reusable collection of graphic primitives and primitives attributes stored in memory) controls a cathode-ray-tube's screen to form an image of plant operations. The im... View full abstract»

    A description is given of a prototype computer control system added to the McMaster University Tandem Accelerator Laboratory's Model FN Van de Graaff Accelerator. Using a PDP-11/23 computer, the two-dimensional electrostatic low-energy steerers are controlled to optimize energy-analyzed beam intensity. This is useful as an operator's `third hand' while other parameters of the beam transport system... View full abstract»
