Abstract:

The quarters work concentrated upon completing the frozen designs, both electrical and mechanical, and beginning construction of the subsystem. To be completed during Phase III B, this subsystem will demonstrate feasibility of the techniques developed during the course of Project LIGHTNING. The worst-case designs of the logic subsystem were finalized, and all types of wafers were constructed and tested. Performance of these wafers was essentially in agreement with analytic calculations. It is believed that the subsystem can be built with no further key invention required. Author
