    One of the most controversial subjects today is the cost-effectiveness and usefulness of high-level languages in microcomputer applications. Lawrence Livermore Laboratory has been involved with microprocessors since 19721,2and as such has constantly been involved with the evaluation of HLL's. The problem becomes even more complicated when the area of real time data acquisition and contr... View full abstract»

    A company like RCA may decide to design a new computer for a variety of reasons, most of them non-technical. First, as with the mainframe computer manufacturers, a new computer may be introduced in order to continue or expand an existing line of computer systems within the firm's overall product line. In such cases, the new computer will be similar to the other members of the product line family. ... View full abstract»

    Microprocessors have brought flexibility and versatility to a wide range of instrumentation. They have brought new problems as well. Two such problems–the difficulty of remote reprogramming and the need in certain circumstances for peripheral storage–can be especially troublesome for the design engineer who needs to test his prototype instruments at the site of application.

    Laser research facilities, with their typically severe EMI environment and attendant need for minimum length data links, represent an ideal application for a distributed microcomputer-based control system. This paper presents the conceptual design of a distributed control system for the High Energy Gas Laser Facility (Figure 1). Third in a series of experimental CO2 laser fusion systems at Los Ala...

    Real-time process control problems in computer testing of automobile engines have led to the development of a low-cost microprocessor-based general-purpose minicomputer peripheral controller at the Chrysler Corporation Technical Computer Center in Detroit. Advantages of the new system over minicomputer-only or microcomputer-only systems include both improved system flexibility and better use of sy... View full abstract»

    A simple, low-cost gantry crane robotic platform for use in computer vision research has been developed recently in the Department of Computer Science at the Australian National University in Canberra. The device operates as a mechanical arm, manipulating elements of scenes being scanned by a video camera. Input from the camera is then subjected to computer analysis. View full abstract»

    Not too long ago, Bob Moody's idea of a computer store was a warehouse full of used 360's. At least, that's what first came into his mind when Paul Terrell suggested they pool their resources to open shop. Now just two years after the two of them founded the original Byte Shop (there are currently over 40 individually owned Byte Shops across the country), Moody is, one of the most seasoned entrepr...
