Abstract : The design objective of the Teledyne TDY-750 computer series was to be completely compliant with the three Air Force Standards applying to aircraft mission computers: MIL-STD-1750A, MIL-STD-1553B, and MIL-STD-1589B (Jovial J73). A secondary design objective was to build a machine substantially lighter and faster than its competition while using standard discrete parts available from multiple sources. All objectives were met and, on 8/31/82, the first production prototype machine completed acceptance testing ahead of schedule. The 15 pound machine includes 64K memory, housing, power supply, and a microprogrammable 1553B Bus Controller/Remote Terminal. Formal SEAFAC testing to Change Notice 1 was successfully completed 8/25/82. A powerful software development system, including a real time Jovial Symbolic Debugger, complete the total hardware/software system. (Author)
