A standard serial interfacing scheme is described. It is appropriate for the interfacing of a variety of peripherals to minicomputers, as well as for the interconnection of two or more minicomputers. The use of this serial interface simplifies the problem of compatibility of communications between computers and peripherals with different word lengths. It is quite easy for computers with different word lengths to communicate with each other without modifications of any hardware.
Minicomputer interface, peripheral interfaces, serial interface, shared peripherals.
