A method of increasing the reliability of magnetic core memories through utilization of so-called core pairs is the subject of this paper. The method is based on full currents, rather than on the coincidences of two half-currents, which renders the memory quite insensitive to power supply fluctuations. Because of its slowness and relative complexity, the core pair memory is best suited for special purpose computers not requiring large storage capacity. A reduction in power is possible if cores having low coercive force are used. The author includes a mathematical analysis of the optimum pulse shape for the reset pulse and the configuration of the address system.
