    The IMS B420 (Vectram) has been developed to offer both scalar and vector processing in a single TRAM module. This module combines the scalar floating/integer and the general-purpose capabilities of the transputer with a high-performance vector/signal processing coprocessor (ZR34325). A set of software libraries are available which allow programs, written in high-level languages, running on the tr... View full abstract»

    Describes a machine which can transfer the positions of points on an object into a computer by probing it. Once the whole of the object has been probed, the computer can draw images of the object, looking from different angles. The data produced by the machine from the object can be saved onto disc so that different views of the object can be drawn from the same set of data. The machine is entirel... View full abstract»
