Title
(EN) AUTOMATIC WRITE SYSTEM FOR PERIPHERAL-CONTROLLER
(FR) SYSTEME D'ECRITURE AUTOMATIQUE POUR CONTROLEUR DE PERIPHERIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A peripheral-controller (20t) is used to manage data transfers between magnetic tape peripheral units (50) and a main host computer (10), as depicted in (Fig. 1). A program sequencer in the peripheral-controller can initiate an automatic read-write selection logic and control unit (Fig. 2) to operate in the "automatic write" mode whereby an automatic write-logic unit (Fig. 9) will transfer data out of a buffer memory (RAM 22) in the peripheral-controller and into a magnetic tape control unit (50tc) on a continuous basis without further instructions being required from the program sequencer.
(FR)
Un contrôleur de phériphériques (20t) est utilisé pour gérer des transferts de données entre des unités périphériques à bande magnétique (50) et un ordinateur central (10) (Fig. 1). Un séquenceur de programme dans le contrôleur de périphériques peut faire démarrer une unité logique de sélection de lecture-écriture automatique et de commande (Fig. 2), afin qu'elle travaille en mode d'"écriture automatique", une unité logique d'écriture automatique (Fig. 9) étant chargée de transférer les données d'une mémoire tampon (RAM 22) dans le contrôleur de périphériques et dans une unité de commande de bande magnétique (50tc) d'une manière continue, sans que le séquenceur de programme ne requière d'autres instructions.
