Minicomputers were characterised by short word lengths of 8 to 32 bits, limited hardware and software facilities and small physical size. Their low cost made them suitable for a wide variety of applications such as industrial control, where a small, dedicated computer which is permanently assigned to one application, is needed.

These systems are typically con- c' cerned with process control, data communications, traffic control, small-scale time-sharing, instrument ' control, etc., all ofwhich require modeling and sim- ulation.

We appealed to authors to include any other relevant areas in order to help decide whether there is, has been. Microcomputer, an electronic device with a microprocessor as its central processing unit (CPU). Microcomputer was formerly a commonly used term for personal computers, particularly any of a class of small digital computers whose CPU is contained on a single integrated semiconductora microcomputer uses a single microprocessor for its CPU, which performs all logic.

Minicomputer: A minicomputer is a type of computer that possesses most of the features and capabilities of a large computer but is smaller in physical size. A minicomputer fills the space between the mainframe and microcomputer, and is smaller than the former but larger than the latter.

Minicomputers are mainly used as small or mid-range. @article{osti_, title = {Industrial robots and robotics}, author = {Kafrissen, S. and Stephens, M.}, abstractNote = {This book discusses the study of robotics.

The third edition of the book on Industrial Electronics and Control including Programmable Logic Controller is aimed at providing an explicit explanation of the mode of operation of different electronic power devices in circuits and systems that are in wide use today in modern industry for the control.

Minicomputers. Minicomputers (sometimes called the "mini") are defined primarily in terms of price and size. Minicomputers generally have a word size of 8 – 18 bits (register size); a memory size of 32, – 64, bit words, or 16, – 32, bit words; a processing speed of – kilo-instructions per second (KIPS); and a price in the range of $3, to $50, Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture comprising computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces (GUI) for high-level process supervisory management, while also comprising other peripheral devices like programmable logic controllers (PLC) and discrete proportional-integral-derivative (PID).

This book, now in its second edition, presents in a comprehensive manner the fundamentals of computer-based control of industrial processes.

Intended primarily for undergraduate and postgraduate students of instrumentation/ electronics engineering, the book will also be immensely useful for professionals and researchers in these fields/5(6).

The word "minicomputer" (colloquially, "mini") is a term for a class of smaller computers that evolved in the mids and sold for much less than mainframe and mid-size computers from IBM and its direct a survey, the New York Times suggested a consensus definition of a minicomputer as a machine costing less than $25, with an input-output.

Introduction There are many business applications which fit far better the terminology and techniques of industrial control than they do that of conventional data processing.

A dealer in any commodity. Minicomputer definition is - a small computer that is intermediate between a microcomputer and a mainframe in size, speed, and capacity, that can support time-sharing, and that is often dedicated to a single application.

The cost of computers is coming down, and the availability of programming languages and application packages for process control is increasing. These facts indicate that computers should find more application to extraction and edible oil plants.

Some of the potential applications for these industries, with examples, are by: 5.1 The misconceptions which were based on the qualities of minicomputers until the last few years were: 1.

slow instruction execution time and cycle time, 2. small memory with lack of expansion, 3. lack of peripheral equipment, 4. lack of peripheral device interfaces, 5. low reliability and unsatisfactory maintenance services, 6.
