Abstract

Storage and Central Processing Unit (CPU) load on a minicomputer is reduced and the software device support is transferred to an outboard processor. Shared storage is used to prevent an additional data transfer between the devices and main storage and a uniform instruction set (the one used by the CPU) is used to ease code migration and the programming of the I/O processor.
