    The cover picture is a contour map of a function z = f(x,y), with the values of z lying in specified intervals for points displayed with the same color. The system which does this kind of computation is based on a minicomputer with a student-built vector arithmetic unit. Color pictures are developed in raster scan form and displayed on a color monitor. The pictures with this article are photograph... View full abstract»

    The computer bus commonly known as the S-100 was first introduced by MITS, Inc., with its Altair kit. This bus has since spread throughout the electronics industry and beyond. Today over a hundred manufacturers make products which claim to be compatible with the S-100 bus even though–until now– no complete specification has been available. The following table, figures, and notes consti... View full abstract»
