The PDP is a series of bit minicomputers sold by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) from into the s, one of a succession of products in the PDP series. In total, aroundPDPs of all models were sold, making it one of DEC's most successful product lines.

The PDP is considered by some experts to be the most popular minicomputer ever. The code as presented will run on a PDP/40 with RK disk drive, LP line printer interface, PCL paper tape writer and KL terminal interface, or a suitable PDP emulator, such as : John Lions.

introduction computer systems communicating with the computer applications ii. The PDP/94 is the UNIBUS-capable twin to the QBUS-only PDP/93; both used the KDJE CPU (with its PMI bus, although with the main memory all on the CPU card, the PMI was less important).

The /94 added a KTJB UNIBUS adapter to provide its UNIBUS, and. The paper I have chosen tonight is a retrospective on a computer design. It is one of a series of papers by Gordon Bell, and various co-authors, spanning the design, growth, and eventual replacement of the companies iconic line of PDP mini computers.

I believe that the first PDP 11 emulator would be SIM written in FORTRAN before the first PDP 11/20 hardware was even built - see How the PDP Was Born.

There is more PDP 11 history at Of course if you want your own PDP 11/70 front panel you might consider a PiDP Happy emulating. An interface was developed to go between the PDP 15/30 computer and the Versatec printer/plotter, model A, operating in the serial print mode.

The interface construction involved fabricating a cable with two twisted pairs for a signal and a control line, speeding up the clock in the existing foreground teletype controller and changing less.

PDP Simulator Configuration The PDP was the most popular bit minicomputer. Introduced by DEC init remained in active production until The PDP/45 was the early fast UNIBUS PDP system, using the KBA CPU (early units, prior to ) or KBD CPU (later units) high-performance CPUs, implemented in SSI Schottky TTL logic.

The difference between the two CPUs was whether they worked with the FPB or FPC FP11 floating point was optional, as was the KTC Memory Management Unit (the first implementation of Architecture: PDP DEC never seemed to be able to get cards quite right.

Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the bit computer line, which implemented seven different card reader options across the five machines in the bit family PDP-1, PDP-4, PDP-7, PDP-9, and PDP Interface manual Mb pdf: PDP-7 Interface and installation manual.

front end cabinet (pdp/40) (part 3) As already told before in this article series the DECSYSTEM (PDP / KL10) was delivered in 3 cabinets as seen in the following picture.

The front end processor (PDP/40) was located in the number 1 cabinet, the left most, with the expansion drawer to hold application specific variable system : Exo Cruiser. DEC Professional I bought this computer on eBay also.

A PRO is a personal computer with a PDP 11 computer to line printer interface. book CPU (J). It is in a desktop box, has built in graphics, dual floppies, a 10MB hard drive, a network port, and several expansion slots.

Here is the forward from page iii. Note how yellow the page is. The PDP is a family of upward compatible computer systems. The PDP/23 Project (or a Fool and his money are soon parted!) Almost thirty years ago I bought a PDP-8 with the idea of using it.

at the time I did not know how to write in assembler, or basic or much of anything else but did have big ideas. Here is a video taken in of a live DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation) PDP/40 Computer system running a V7 version of the RSTS/E Operating System.

PDP After the famous PDP-1 inDEC established a successful business and during the s launched its remarkable bit PDP-8 series of minicomputers. During the late s however, the time had come for the introduction of a bit machine to replace the PDP Inone of DEC's key design engineers, the 28 years old Edson de Castro was assigned to design a bit machine, with.

Developer of Ersatz, a software PDP emulator for MS-DOS, Windows, Linux, OS/2, and bare-metal PCs giving emulation speed far faster than the PDP/ The free demo version may be used for day commercial evaluation, or unlimited personal/hobby use.

use of the PDP will be described in terms Of its environment (initial goals and constraints, technology, and the organization that designs, builds and distributes the machine).

Stuff You Always Wanted The 'STUFF' is a collection of LSI and PDP items which include processors, peripherals, miscellaneous cards, manuals, and engineering drawings from DEC and DEC compatible manufacturers.

Most items listed are available for sale/swap. The PDP architecture is an instruction set architecture (ISA) developed by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC). It is implemented by central processing units (CPUs) and microprocessors used in PDP minicomputers. It was in wide use during the s, but was eventually overshadowed by the more powerful VAX architecture in the s.R0: Register 0.

Designed with a pluggable architecture, it currently has: support for x86, 68k, PowerPC processors (partial support for Arm, Mips, Sparc, Z80, m, PDP) - support for EXE, Elf, AmigaOS Hunk executable formats - support for MS-DOS, Win32, U*ix, AmigaOS (partial for C64, ZX) Decompiler comes with a GUI and a command-line interface.

That's right: PDP assembler coders are hard to find, but the nuclear industry is planning on keeping the bit machines ticking over until –. It was awesome. In retrospect, I was quite lucky to learn PDP programming before I learned the VAX architecture, Motorolaand eventually Intel // line.

Here's why - all of those more advanced architectures have "bells and. Taco Cowboy writes "Most of the younger /.

readers never heard of the PDP, while we geezers have to retrieve bits and pieces of our affairs with PDP from the vast warehouse inside our memory lanes." From the article: "HP might have nuked OpenVMS, but its parent, PDP, is still spry and powering GE nuclear power-plant robots and will do for another 37 years.5/5().

Looking for online definition of PDP or what PDP stands for. PDP is listed in the World's largest and most authoritative dictionary database of abbreviations and acronyms The Free Dictionary. The DEC PDP was the most popular in the PDP (Programmed Data Processors) line of minicomputers, a successor to the previously popular PDP-8 (the PDP () was a higher capacity bit mainframe-like version of the PDP-8, much adored and rumoured to have souls), and remained in production until the decision to discontinue the line as of.

PDP/05 PDP/10 PDP/20 PDP/34C PDP/35 PDP/53 PDP/70 DECstation VAXserver VAX Welcome. If you are interested in old computer technology, especially the PDP from Digital Equipment Corporation, in short "DEC", I would like to invite you on a tour along my vintage Digital PDP computer systems.

The "computer on a board" provided greater performance than the PDP/20 and maintained compatibility with the PDP systems that preceded it. The PDP was an instant success. In its first week of release Digital received orders. Today more than half a million PDP- 11 systems are still operating around the world.

DEC PDP-9, System Number MAINDECD2DA LP09 Line Printer Test We now think that this is probably the interface that connected the PDP/23 to the PDP Click on the image for a larger view.

Charles Lasner donated a TC02 DECtape controller for bit DEC systems. The first of the 's, born in Junefeaturing the KA11 processor, built from Digital's M Series Integrated Circuit FLIP-CHIP Modules - small modules with TTL (Transistor-to-Transistor Logic) components.

The PDP/20 is a general-purpose computer with a wordlength of 16 bits. Introduction. The purpose of this document is to supplement the material in the primary Frequently Asked Questions about the PDP-8 file with more detailed information about the hardware and options of the different models of the PDP-8 sold by DEC.

Although this document is something of a history of the DEC PDP-8 family, the primary purpose of this document is as a guide and general outline to. As an example of the use of IOT instructions, consider the console terminal interface.

On early PDP-8 systems, this was always assumed to be an ASR 33 teletype, complete with low-speed paper tape reader and punch. It was addressed as devices 03 (the keyboard/reader) and 04 (the teleprinter/punch). RSTS (/ ˈ r ɪ s t ɪ s /) is a multi-user time-sharing operating system, initially developed by Evans Griffiths & Hart of Boston, and acquired by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC, now part of Hewlett Packard) for the PDP series of bit first version of RSTS (RSTS, Version 1) was implemented in by DEC software engineers that developed the TSS-8 time-sharing Developer: Digital Equipment Corporation, later Mentec.PDP-8 (Straight 8) Computer.
