The PDP-11 was a series of 16-bit minicomputers sold by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) from 1970 into the 1990s, one of a succession of products in the PDP series.  The PDP-11 family replaced the PDP-8 in many real-time applications, though both product lines lived in parallel for more than 10 years.

The PDP-11 had several uniquely innovative features, and was easier to program than its predecessors with its use of general registers. It was replaced in the mid-range minicomputer niche by the 32-bit VAX-11.
