The integrated computing system, including a Beckman 2200 analog computer and Scientific Data Systems 920 digital computer, was introduced in 1964.
Beckman Instruments' analog computers were being produced by their Berkeley Division as early as 1953. The company produced analog computers -- also called automation, data reduction, or data handling systems -- for the petroleum, aerospace, and defense industries. Beckman Instruments eventually stopped producing these systems after their cost and the time required to customize them kept them from being widely adopted.
