Abstract : The paper describes a method of using a small computer as a flexible interface between a number of different devices. Initially the system was used to interface Teletype terminals to a remote batch processing capability on a large scale computing system, an IBM 360/67. The next step was to add a medium-speed (2000 baud) line via which an IBM 1130 may serve as a remote card reader/punch/printer to the 360. The programmable interface system is implemented on an Interdata-15 computer. (Author)
