The use of fast-rising short-duration pulses in the design of a 1K - 144 bit NDRO memory with permeability sensing leads to high-frequency considerations not normally encountered in ferrite core memories. In particular, the high-frequency character of the device must be recognized to properly evaluate cycle time capabilities and array transmission. The design of this memory centers around a 2-core-per-bit word-organized array. The array was optimized with the aid of a computer analysis that considered the device, array geometry, and line termination as variables. The performance of this system has been tested by a cross-section model incorporating full length, fully populated word and digit lines.
