    Abstract—This paper considers the problem of determining whether a sequential machine, given by its flow table, can be realized in the form of a single binary shift register. One-to-one and many-to-one assignments are considered. Binary partitions are introduced, and shift registers are characterized in terms of binary partitions. An algorithm is given for the determination of the required p... View full abstract»

    Abstract—A new class of modular networks, called "modular tree networks," is presented. In these circuits every input of the first-level gate is connected to the output of a different second-level unit, and, in general, every input of every ith-level unit is connected to the output of a different (i+1)th-level unit.

    Abstract—A class of networks is described that has the capability of permuting in an arbitrary manner a set of n digital input lines onto a set of n digital output lines. The circuitry of the networks is arranged in cellular form, i. e., in a two-dimensional iterative pattern with mainly local intercell connections, where the basic cell behaves as a reversing switch with a single memory flip...

  • Statistical Properties of Random Digital Sequences

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):452 - 461

    Abstract—Recent studies have shown that many noise processes in sequential networks can be described as a multinomial process, a Markov process, or a linearly dependent process. This paper extends the results of those studies to show how the statistics of any sequence selected from processes of this type can be calculated. View full abstract»

    Abstract—This paper treats the problem of finding efficient secondary assignments for synchronous sequential circuits. It presents a straightforward approach which identifies codes resulting in the least number of memory elements and sets of simple next-state functions, expressed in the sum-of-product form.

    Abstract—The display system, named MODEL T, accepts coded digital data from a voice grade telephone line and displays graphical and alphanumeric information on a direct-view storage tube. Since a storage tube is used, no local refresh is required to maintain the display. The essential virtue of the MODEL T is the combined graphic and alphanumeric capability in an economic design. The MODEL T... View full abstract»

    Abstract—The possible introduction of changeable control memories in fourth-generation computers may color the manner in which programming systems are designed and implemented. With this type of machine, we will be able to implement varieties of instruction sets by writing microprograms to interpret them. The trade-offs involved in deciding what part of a system is to be handled by the hardw... View full abstract»

    Abstract—A digital processor capable of computing the discrete Fourier transform for a range of audio signals in real time has been built as part of a facility to conduct research in signal processing. The digitized sample values can be complex. The arithmetic unit is configured to perform complex connectives, and automatic array scaling is used to make numerical accuracy independent of sign...

    Abstract—An unconventional approach to character recognition is developed. The resulting system is based solely on the statistical properties of the language, therefore it can read printed text with no previous training or a priori information about the structure of the characters. The known letter-pair frequencies of the language are used to identify the printed symbols in the following man... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    Abstract—This note defines a general F matrix that arises from a tree that is formed according to a specific element priority. An alternative based on this matrix is presented to the usual method of repeated matrix manipulation for arriving at the solutions of various network quantities. The conditions required for this alternative and its limitations are also presented. View full abstract»

    Abstract—This note describes several methods of performing fast, efficient, binary-to-decimal conversion. With a modest amount of circuitry, an order of magnitude speed improvement is obtained. This achievement offers a unique advantage to general-purpose computers requiring special hardware to translate between binary and decimal numbering systems. View full abstract»
