    An analysis of the functional representation of the carry digits in the addition process shows that the one-megacycle circuitry of SEAC and DYSEAC can be organized logically to permit the formation of many successive carries simultaneously. The Boolean expression for any carry digit Ck can be expanded so as to be an explicit function of only the input digits of orders k to k-p+1 and of the carry d... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a small coincident-current memory used for buffer storage. Such a memory as part of the self-checking card-to-magnetic-tape converter, an auxiliary of the Univac System, is now in production. Typical advantages of a small coincident-current memory in computer input-output equipment, as well as some of the problems encountered in its application, are described. This memory affo...

    Many papers have been written about the reflected binary system and it is well known in the computer field for analog-to-digital conversion. The method used in creating this system may be extended to systems of bases other than two. It is the purpose of this paper to carry this extension to its logical conclusion. The author describes how reflected systems of different bases may be composed. The e... View full abstract»

    This article describes the use of a multigrid vacuum tube as an AM multigrid modulator multiplier. The accuracy of the multiplier is dependent only upon the linear properties of the vacuum tube used and not upon careful adjustment of the operating potentials. It is unusual that such a simple device should give a range of 78 db with only a ±2 per cent full scale error. The advantages and also rest... View full abstract»

  • Transistors in Current-Analog Computing

    Publication Year: 1956 , Page(s): 86 - 93

    A system of electronic analog computing is described in which current is used as the variable. The paper indicates that the circuit properties of transistors make them especially suitable for use in operational amplifiers for this computing technique. Experimental direct-coupled amplifiers are shown which have been built and evaluated using low-power, low-frequency transistors. The amplifiers have... View full abstract»
