CORPORATE OVERVIEW
RIGHT TURN

Armenia
INTERNATIONAL
The whole idea behind the Distributed Logic Corporation is
simple: to market state-of-the-art disk and tape drive
controllers which deliver a high level of performance at low
Cost.
Our controllers are smaller, boast lower power require-
ments and are more reliable—due to fewer components
—than any other products on the market today. They are
also easier to install and maintain. And we back up every
one of our products with quality control and delivery sys-
tems that are second to none.
Mass storage and tape drive controllers for the Digital
Equipment Corporation (DEC) line of mini- and micro-
computers are our specialty. DILOG is the acknowledged
leader in this area for the low end of the DEC product line
—by far, the largest installed base of small computers in
the world.
Collectively, the people at DILOG represent over 300 years
of electronics industry experience in the management,
marketing and technical areas. We have been involved in
all facets of the mini-/microcomputer segment of the
industry since its inception in the early 1960's. Today,
DILOG maintains a staff of experienced professionals in the
key disciplines, augmented when necessary by outside
services and consultants of the highest caliber.
Both domestically and internationally, DILOG markets its
products through direct sales offices in Garden Grove,
California and in the U.K. These are augmented by a
network of manufacturer's representatives and distributors.
Currently, tens of thousands of DILOG peripheral con-
trollers are installed and operating in customer sites
throughout the U.S., the U.K., Europe and Southeast Asia.
Before we began selling our products in 1978, we
spent a considerable amount of time with one
goal in mind: to be able to go from specifica-
tion to marketplace with any new controller
in 120 to 180 days, versus the industry aver-
age of 8 to 12 months. Our automated concept
for product development has enabled us to do just
that. We can always react quickly to the rapid technological
changes which are a cornerstone of the small computer
industry.
PRODUCTS
We currently offer 28 magnetic tape and disk controller
products for the DEC PDP-11 minicomputer and LSI-11
microcomputer. Connection of each controller to the
magnetic tape or disk drive which it controls is made
through common flat cables. Along with the small size of
DILOG's products, this means our customers can easily
install and service our boards.
At the heart of every DILOG product is a proprietary
design. In tandem with our unique automated computer
based peripheral controller development systems, we are
able to produce the highest quality peripheral controllers—
products which are not only more cost effective, but which
can be brought to the marketplace faster than any other
competitive products.
The intelligence—or ‘“‘personality’’—of each of our con-
trollers is determined by firmware programming of the
DILOG proprietary microprocessor-based design, represent-
ing approximately 60% of the circuitry involved with each
device. There is an 80% overall physical and electrical
commonality between most products offered by the
company.
All of DILOG's intelligent controllers have an on-board
automatic self-test feature as well. Each controller contains
built-in microdiagnostics with which it can test itself upon
initiation by the host computer. A green light on the edge of
each controller's printed circuit card remains lit as long as
the self-test procedure is successful. Should the controller
fail a test on itself, the light is extinguished. The customer
then simply unplugs the controller and replaces it.
Other DILOG controller features include automatic media
flaw compensation, automatic power down protection and
memory addressing capability to 256 Kbytes, or with 22-bit
addressing 4 megabytes. Our controllers consume up to
60% less power than multiple board type embedded con-
trollers and no specially wired connectors, power supplies
or bus converters are required.
We're currently looking into new applications of
our existing technology to other areas of data
processing. In the. near future, we hope to be
BRIGHT E.
FUTURE ) Making important announcements regarding
AHEAD / new product categories which DILOG is just
beginning to explore.
In every sense, we're a company on the move.
Wherever the industry is headed next, DILOG intends to
map out new directions in powerful, simple-to-use computer
components for all the years to come.
