Catalog type History
Provenance This Control Data Corp. (CDC) computer was a high-speed digital computer to process laboratory data and was introduced in 1965. It could handle data processing in real-time, and was modular so it could be combined with other components.

.01 Contains programming specifications of the HL-20 (Hybrid Linkage) computer from the DCRT Hybrid Computer Group. "The CDC 3100 digital computer is interfaced to the GeoSpace SS100 analog computer via an interfacing device known as the HL-20 hybrid link."

.02 The CDC 3100 is a "medium-sized, solid-state, general purpose, digital computing system" with modular packaging, making it ideal for linking to other devices.

.03 "Scope" stands for Supervisory Control of Program Execution.

.04 This manual presents machine language for the CDC 3200, 3100, 3300 and the use of Scope, which controls job processing.
