Asynchronous Serial Interface for Connecting a PDP-11 to the ARPANET (BBN 1822) by Stanford University( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes an interface to permit the connection of any PDP-11 to either the Packet radio network or the ARPAnet. The interface connects to an IMP on one side, meeting the specifications published in BBN report number 1822, and to a 16 bit parallel interface (DRV-11 or DR11-C) as described in the DEC peripherals and interfacing handbook. The interface card itself is a double height board (5.2in.x8.5in.) which can be plugged into any peripheral slot in a PDP-11 backplane. The interface card is connected to the parallel interface card via two cables with Berg 40 pin connectors (DEC H-856) and to the IMP via an Amphenol bayonet connector (48-10R-18-31S). All 3 cables and connectors are supplied with the I/O interface card. The parallel interface card (DEC DR11-C or DRV-11) together with the special I/O interface card described in this report comprise the 1822 interface. The report includes descriptions of the operation of circuits, programming, and diagnostics for the 1822 interface. (Author)
Plug Compatible Replacement for a Bell 303 Modem Using Local Twisted Pair Wire by Ronald C Crane( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This note describes a low cost ($275 per end) plug replacement for a Bell 303. 50KB serial modem using local twisted pair wire for transmission. The unit contains a 50 KHz crystal clock and appropriate drivers, receivers, and level shifters to convert the unbalanced local terminal interface to balanced DC signalling for transmission over local twisted pair wire. The note contains a description of the operation of the unit as well as an overview of the subassemblies which comprise the unit and detailed diagrams for each. (Author)
ARPANET Management Study: New Application Areas( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project seeks the discovery of new applications for computer-netting technology that have high payoff to the Department of Defense. The thrust of the project is now upon the consideration of the feasibility of automating certain routine data base/communications functions with the defense procurement process. The report discusses the procedures used in reaching the tentative conclusions; contains a description of the magnitude of the problem; and proposes preliminary hardware configuration design to allow more careful refining of the parameters.

ARPANET Management Study( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study examines some of the issues affecting the long range development of packet switching in general. It specifically considers the role of the ARPANET in this development. The near-term question of transfer of a portion of the communications portion of the ARPANET is examined in detail, and the background of the development of the network is discussed to place the key issues in perspective
New Applications for ARPANET Developed Information Processing Technology. Volume I. On the Automation of the Procurement Process: Present Status, Feasibility for Improvements, Proposed Next Steps, and Payoffs( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The report discusses technical and economic feasibility of widespread computer-netting technology to aid DOD procurement effectiveness, and describes procurement automation system development, the software and hardware required, and provides a hardware configuration. Next steps are logically detailed in a procurement automation system. Cost-benefit analysis and a survey of procurement automation systems presently in use is provided. It is indicated that savings in excess of $1 billion per year might be achievable in the future
