The author describes a digital computer developed at the Computation Center of the Azerbaydzhan Academy of Sciences, using sequential and in some cases parallel-sequential units. The computer employs commercially produced ferrite-diode elements, operating at a low timing frequency 30 kcs. The article describes the principles underlying individual units of the computer, which can be used either independently or as parts of other computer systems. All the computer units operate with 24-digit binary numbers including the sign digit with fixed radix. The units described are a universal arithmetic unit of sequential action, the information input unit, the external magnetic-tape memory, and the output unit. The computer employs a total of 88 simple and 50 logic elements.
