    The counters without short-time internal memory, conceived by Bigelow, disclosed by Ware, and extended by Brown, are discussed from the standpoint of their respective logic. It is shown that the (self-instructed) bidirectional1 counter of Brown has a more rigorous logic than the unidirectional counter of Ware; the operation of Brown's bidirectional counter being subjected to the only restriction t...

    The logical design described here is used in MINAC, partially constructed at the California Institute of Technology, and LGP-30, manufactured by Librascope Inc. These serial binary digital computers make use of magnetic drum bulk storage and use three circulating registers and fifteen flip-flops. The procedures used in performing the sixteen elementary operations are described. These descriptions ... View full abstract»

    A transistor-driven magnetic-core memory which has a capacity of 1024 18-bit words has been built and is being studied. Both the read and write operations employ the coincident-current technique. The memory-drive currents are developed by transistors and the desired memory location is selected by magnetic-core selection switches. Eighteen thousand, four hundred and thirty-two memory cores are used... View full abstract»

  • Current Steering in Magnetic Circuits

    Publication Year: 1957 , Page(s): 21 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (5)

    Magnetic switches are described in which the current from an energizing source is guided or steered through one out of many possible parallel branches, the conducting branch being selected by the presetting of appropriate magnetic elements. Only a few tubes are required for energization, and the outputs, obtained with reasonable efficiency, are substantially independent of exact circuit parameters... View full abstract»

  • An Electronic Analog Multiplier Using Carriers

    Publication Year: 1957 , Page(s): 30 - 34

    An electronic analog multiplier is described, which is based on a modulation technique. No dc amplifiers are used, which makes the output entirely free of drifts. All distortions up to the fourth order are eliminated. The experimental model that has been built handles inputs from dc to 7 kc and gives an output from dc to 14 kc. The amplitude range of the output is 50 db. View full abstract»
