Abstract : A linkage between a host computer and a plurality of external devices, such as a simulator system, utilizes a distributed processing network of individual data processors to process control, and position data for transmission to and from said host computer on a data rate of change basis. A master processor interfaces with the host computer and is connected via a serial data link to plurality of slave processors located at the external devices. Each processor determines the necessity for a transfer of data from its associated computer or device and controls data transmission therefrom accordingly.
