Microprocessors, to some degree, are causing computer history to repeat itself. The new areas in which microprocessors are being applied are as surprising and imaginative as were the first minicomputer applications to the computer industry when the minicomputer was a new concept. The microprocessor is also increasing the number of manufactured computers by roughly the same order of magnitude as did the minicomputer in its infancy.
