      A computer that (a) contains a microprocessor, (b) is smaller than a large-scale mainframe computer, i.e., a central processing unit, but not necessarily of small capacity, (c) usually executes computer programs in read-only memory (ROM) that also serves as main storage or internal memory, and (d) usually runs specific applications in communications, computer, automatic data . Definition: A minicomputer is also known as mini. It is a class of small computers that was introduced into the world in the mids. A minicomputer is a computer which has all the features of a large size computer, but its size is smaller than those. A minicomputer lies between the mainframe and the microcomputer because its size is smaller than the former one and larger than the latter one.

He came to HP in 1 after several years of research and teaching at the University of Michigan. He's a student of woodcrafts, bowhunting, and judo, and he drives to work in a Ford pickup which he's 'not restoring, just recycling.'.   Minicomputer systems: structure, implementation, and application Item Preview remove-circle Minicomputer systems: structure, implementation, and application by Weitzman, Cay.

Minicomputer: A minicomputer is a type of computer that possesses most of the features and capabilities of a large computer but is smaller in physical size. A minicomputer fills the space between the mainframe and microcomputer, and is smaller than the former but larger than the latter.

Minicomputers are mainly used as small or mid-range. His research subject is the application of SERS and TERS to biological issues and more especially to the disease diagnosis. He is head of the "spectroscopies of biomolecules and biological media" research team and he is director of the CNRS national research network on the Molecular Plasmonics and Enhanced Spectroscopies.
