Computer Operations, Inc. LINC Tape

Computer Operations, Inc. LINC Tape
 
The LINC Tape was developed at Lincoln Laboratories. This LINC Tape was manufactured by Computer Operations, Inc. and could be used on a Data General, DEC, or HP computers. This small magnetic tape drive was much easier to use than a large pile of paper tapes. DEC improved the design and manufactured their own DECtape including patented improvements to the original LINC Tape design. The DEC improvements would let you read and write data in either direction. With Computer Operations, Inc. help the US Patent office canceled DEC's patents on the LINC Tape improvements.
