GROUP 70 Automatic Data Processing Equipment (Including Firmware), Software, Supplies and Support Equipment

7010 ADPE System Configuration Note-a group of general purpose ana- log, digital, or hybrid electronic or electro- mechanical devices that are intercon- nected to operate as a system. Frequently referred to as an ADP system, although the term system is not consid- ered definitive. Includes an assembly of devices consisting of a central process- ing unit (CPU) and the necessary input/output devices, accessorial de- vices, analog measurement devices, software and/or firmware required to per- form the desired objectives. Also includes sub-assemblies and units in which input/output devices, CPUs, and/or ac- cessorial devices or components are in- corporated into a single assembly or unit. A specially designed device incorporated into a system shall not influence the clas- sification of the base assembly or unit.

7020 ADP Central Processing Unit (CPU, Computer), Analog Note-An analog is a representation in one form of a physical condition existing in another form (e.g., the level of mercury in a tube represents temperature in a thermometer; the angular position of a needle represents speed on a speedom- eter). This class includes only CPUs that accept as inputs the electrical equivalent of physical conditions such as flow, tem- perature, pressure, angular position or voltage and perform computations by manipulating these electrical equivalents to produce results for further use.

7021 ADP Central Processing Unit (CPU, Computer), Digital Note-Digital refers to the representa- tion of discrete numbers, symbols and alphabetic characters by a predeter- mined, coded combination of electrical impulses. This class includes only CPUs that accept information represented by digital impulses. Specifically, a device ca- pable of performing sequences of arith- metic and logic operations (a program) not only on data but also on the program which is contained in its internal memory (storage) without intervention of an op- erator.

7022 ADP Central Processing Unit (CPU, Computer), Hybrid Note-Hybrid refers to a combination of analog and digital capability as defined in Classes

7020 and

7021 with conversion capability required for intercommunica- tion.

7025 ADP Input/Output and Storage Devices Note This class includes devices used to control and transfer information to and from a Computer (as modified). The input device is used for transferring data and instructions into a computer. The output device is used to transfer results of pro- cessing by the computer to ADP periph- eral devices. Input/output devices com- bine the above functions in the same device. This class includes printers, dis- play units, disk drive units (magnetic, op- tical and floptical), tape drive units, termi- nals, data entry devices and transfer units. Also includes Optical Compact Disk (CD) devices used for the storage and retrieval of data and firmware.

7030 ADP Software Note-Software is a series of instruc- tions or statements in a form acceptable to a CPU, designed to cause the ADPE configuration to execute an operation or operations; or a collection of data in a form capable of being processed and op- erated on by a computer. Includes System programs, such as op- erating systems, assemblers, compilers, executive routines, interpreters, transla- tors; utility programs, such as sort/merge programs, media conversion, mainte- nance diagnostic programs; and applica- tion programs, such as payroll, inventory control, and engineering analysis pro- grams. Excludes Software designed to Govern- ment specifications to satisfy the require- ments of a particular user or for use with ADPE properly classifiable in an FSG other than FSG 70. Also excludes operat- ing manuals and programmers' manuals properly classified in FSG 76.

7035 ADP Support Equipment Note This class includes various de- vices and associated control units which are designed for use in combination or conjunction with an ADPE configuration but are not part of the configuration itself. ADP support equipment includes mag- netic tape testing, certifying, and cleaning equipment; disk pack testing, certifying and cleaning equipment; tape equipment, rewinders, splicers, spoolers and card re- conditioners. Included in this class are complete units and components of re- lated general purpose commercially available support equipment which are not specifically designed for use as part of a system such as a weapon system, control system, digital image processing system, missile system, communication system or navigation system. Also in- cluded are support control systems and components not specifically designed for use with process control such as auto- matic machine tool processing opera- tions in which flow, pressure, temperature or other parameters are controlled by in- strument regulations in automatic ma- chine tool and process operations.

7040 Punched Card Equipment Includes Collating machines, key punch machines, tabulating machines; verifiers; reproducers; summary punches, sorters; interpreters. Excludes Card actuated machines de- signed for use with an ADPE system.

7042 Mini and Micro Computer Control Devices Includes Mini or micro computers used as control mechanisms where computer technology is essential in controlling, monitoring, measuring, and directing pro- cesses, devices, instruments or other equipment. Excludes Mini and micro computer con- trol devices which are designed specifi- cally for use in and/or integral to higher order systems, e.g., aircraft fire control systems, numerically controlled machine tools, sequence controlled printing equip- ment, motion measuring instruments, of- fice information system equipment, and the like.

7045 ADP Supplies Note This class includes ADP tape seal bands, reels and hubs, carrying cases, canisters, and the like. Also includes all nonrecorded magnetic recording media designed to be used with ADP equip- ment, such as magnetic tape, removable disk packs, magnetic cards, cassettes, and diskettes. Also includes Optical Disks used for the storage of data.

7050 ADP Components Note-This class includes ADP Compo- nent Assemblies that are parts of analog, digital or hybrid data processing devices. Excluded from the class are items for which more specific classifications are suitable. The FSC structure and indexes will govern the classification of those items permitted classification in a single class only.
