    In the 1960s, a popular exercise in and out of the power industry was predicting the golden age that was dawning upon the world (and especially the United States) in which cheap electric energy would be the catalyst in achieving the Nirvana of unparalleled leisure and prosperity. There were glowing descriptions of nuclear power plants mushrooming up (without the familiar cloud) all over the countr... View full abstract»

    An interface system definition, one optimized for the interconnection of programmable bench instruments, must contain many vital communication capabilities if it is to interconnect independently manufactured products at reasonable costs. It must also maintain a high level of compatibility, and a high degree of flexibility. The purpose of this article is to discuss not only the definition of the in... View full abstract»

    Low-density digital recording on magnetic tape, in one form or another, has been used for many years, mostly in data-processing applications such as computer input and output, and, more recently, in storage of complex computer programs. On the other hand, high-density digital recording is a relatively new technology, used mostly in data acquisition, in cases where highly significant data are digit... View full abstract»
