The design of a high-speed, high-accuracy floating-point digital differential analyzer (DDA) system is described. The advantages of a floating-point system are expounded. It is shown that the problem of module interconnection can be alleviated using matrix methods, and a practical implementation of a multiplexed system with a semiconductor fast data storage area is described.
Algorithmic microprogramming, DDA, integrating computer, special purpose computer, virtual processor.
