Abstract:

Multidimensional analysis requires a large capacity memory and for this purpose magnetic tape is considered most expedient. However, lack of control over information during storage and the need for additional processing using a sorter are considered substantial disadvantages of magnetic tape recording. The authors constructed a 16000-address ferrite core storage which can operate either directly as the memory of the multidimensional analyzer or as a sorter for processing magnetic tape data. The large memory makes it possible, in a number of cases, in one pass to transcribe all information from one or several tapes and obtain a graphic picture of the spectrum. In this report they provide the characteristics of the memory and describe the operation of its individual elements. Author
