Abstract:

Application of the processor system has been modified somewhat in that the kilomegacycle computer is to be considered part of a larger dataprocessing system and is not intended primarily for arithmetic problems. The question of conventional versus unconventional design is discussed. Another boundary, that of the effect of tunnel-diode components, has been modified in that the low fan power of tunnel diode circuits conflicts with the desire for complex and sophisticated logic. Various aspects of inputoutput are also discussed, and the control scheme is presented. Finally, the characteristics of three proposed computers from large to small are set forth as a Family of Designs. Author
