Mutable Integrated Memory - Interface - Controller 
 
 
Each of  the numerous products which bore the MIMIC® label looked and performed, to their purchasers, like the custom-designed interfaces, instrumentation, control systems, displays, data capture devices, avionics, mapping equipment, and the like, that they were expected to be.  But, at a time when electronics products were specifically designed for their intended functions, and features were typically hardwired, all the MIMICs shared the same underlying, programmable, microprocessor based, mutable system of boards, varied only in their configuration and firmware. By designing a complete system, first, and then selecting from it a subset for each project, it was possible to supply -- with considerably less than the usual difficulty, and with enhanced speed to delivery -- an extremely varied range of devices.  As new requirements initiated the design of new components, the overall system grew in complexity.  This allowed for continuously expanding capabilities, without expanding the design costs of subsequent products
