Interdata Simulator Configuration

Interdata was founded in the mid 1960's. It produced a family of 16b minicomputers loosely modeled on the IBM 360 architecture. Microprogramming allowed a steady increase in the functionality of successive models.

In the early 1970's, Interdata was purchased by Perkin-Elmer. In 1974, it introduced one of the first 32b minicomputers, the 7/32. Several generations of 32b systems followed:

Interdata was spun out of Perkin-Elmer as Concurrent Computer Corporation.
