The PDP-8/I as a CAT


A programmed algorithm to compute a weighted ensemble average on a set of output signal realizations is presented. Thus programmed, the PDP-8/I can recover output signals, which are due to periodic input signals, from a noisy system. Arbitrarily, large enhancement of signal-to-noise ratio is attainable. The configuration used is a 4K PDP-8/I with AD08-B analog-to-digital converter.
