Interdata, Inc. was a computer company, founded in 1966 and based in Oceanport, New Jersey, that produced a line of 16- and 32-bit minicomputers. They were loosely based on the IBM 360 architecture. In 1973 it was purchased by Perkin-Elmer.[1] In 1974, it produced one of the first 32-bit minicomputers, the Interdata 7/32.
