Abstract:

A medium speed, serial digital computer was constructed using glass delay lines circulating at 22 mc. as memory. An arrangement of information within the 22 mc. memory allows a simple interface with the 340 kc. arithmetic unit, which results in an effective zero latency time and provides possibilities for an associative memory. The arithmetic unit has a command structure similar to large parallel machines and uses flip-flop arithmetic and control registers throughout. All hardware development has been aimed toward the concept of easy modification, elaborate console controls for effective man-machine interaction, and low cost. Author
