Abstract : This report describes a method of linking a host computer to external devices and presents an implementation of such a system using multiple microcomputers. The technique used takes advantage of the statistical properties of simulator data to reduce the amount of data transferred, thereby insuring that those variables that change are updated with minimum delay. Implementation of linkage using multiple microcomputers provides a modular system easily tailored to various simulator applications. (Author)
