Abstract

Increasing use of digital computers in communication environments has emphasized the need for an efficient method of interfacing communication lines to the central computer. Hard-wired multiplexors, acting as slaves to the central computer, must look to it for instruction for polling, error checking and other tasks. This has slowed the central computer from its main task of referencing data and constructing replies.
