  • In the hybrid computer, a converter is fixed to convert the analog signals into digital signals and digital signals into analog signals. 
  • Hybrid computers are special purpose machines. These computers are generally used in scientific applications, aeroplanes and industrial control processes. 
  • A hybrid computer system offers a much cost effective method that is used to perform complex simulations. 
  • Examples: 
    • Hybrid computer is the computer used in hospitals to measure the heartbeat of the patient.
    • Devices used in petrol pump.
    • Hybrid Machines are generally used in scientific applications or in controlling industrial processes.
