The properties of presently available components place special emphasis on two desiderata of logic design for use in a microwave digital computer: 1) Smallness of the number of active elements; 2) elimination of information-cycling paths having delay times comparable or short compared with the bit period, as in the conventional flip-flop. A logic design developed in response to these pressures is described in substantially complete detail. Property 1) is obtained by the use throughout of a multiplexing procedure such that the computer functionally (although not physically) resembles a number of nearly identical, and correspondingly slower, computers which are able to operate either independently or in concert.
