    The merit of any high density detection method is ultimately dependent on the ``resolution'' characteristic of the magnetic recording components. Justification of readback waveform synthesis through ``single pulse'' superposition is given. A comprehensive, yet general readback simulation program is described which will automatically, for any characteristic pulse, simulate all possible readback sig... View full abstract»

    This paper is concerned with the optimal compilation of programs whose function is to transfer words of information from one location in a serial memory to another. The most important optimization tool is the ``timing schedule,'' which facilitates the analysis of various transfer schemes and the determination of the fastest one. The procedure described for optimizing serial transfers is readily pr... View full abstract»

  • The Design of Diode-Transistor NOR Circuits

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):15 - 24
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2853 KB)

    Considerations leading to the adoption of diode-transistor NOR circuitry for a moderately fast data-processing system are outlined. The design of the basic circuit is treated in detail. Development of a unique set of compatible logic packages from the basic circuit is described. This set is unique in the sense that a single type of diode-transistor circuit is used to provide the great majority of ... View full abstract»

  • Esaki Diode High-Speed Logical Circuits

    Cited by:  Papers (59)  |  Patents (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (821 KB)

    Logical circuits using Esaki diodes, and which are based on a principle similar to parametron (subharmonic oscillator element) circuits, are described. Two diodes are used in series to form a basic element called a twin, and a binary digit is represented by the polarity of the potential induced at the middle point of the twin, which is controlled by the majority of input signals applied to the mid...

  • Magnetic Analogs of Relay Contact Networks for Logic

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):30 - 35

    Two techniques are described for designing multiapertured magnetic structures capable of realizing any specific logic function. The structures are made from rectangular hysteresis loop material. The designs are derived from the corresponding relay contact network by replacing each current carrying conductor in the relay circuit with its analog in the magnetic circuit, a flux-carrying conductor, re...

  • The Determination of Carry Propagation Length for Binary Addition

    It is well known that the expected maximum length of nonzero carry propagation in the addition of two uniformly distributed binary numbers of n-digits each is less than log2 n. The propagation of both zero and nonzero carry is required in the employment of asynchronous self-timing addition. For the addition of two n-digit binary numbers which are uniformly distributed, a simple recursive algorithm... View full abstract»

  • Regular Expressions and State Graphs for Automata

    Algorithms are presented for 1) converting a state graph describing the behavior of an automaton to a regular expression describing the behavior of the same automaton (section 2), and 2) for converting a regular expression into a state graph (sections 3 and 4). These algorithms are justified by theorems, and examples are given. The first section contains a brief introduction to state graphs and th... View full abstract»

    The general problem of pattern recognition is regarded as a problem wherein the recognition device is presented with a plane array of black-or-white elements and must decide to which general class (pattern) this array belongs. A method for reducing the necessary amount of logic is presented. It is basically a method for reducing Boolean equations in many variables which contain large numbers of re... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1237 KB)

    The role of signal structure in a signal discrimination system is discussed. The optimality criterion for reference signals for detection in the case of white Gaussian independent noise is defined. The need for normalization of the reference signals is demonstrated. A geometric interpretation is presented. Optimum classes are obtained and several examples cited. A theoretical optimum class of sign... View full abstract»

    The Frequency-to-Period-to-Analog Computer is a special purpose nonlinear analog computer which accepts an ac voltage of varying frequency, acts upon the period of each cycle, computes the inverse of the time period, e = 1/T, and holds the information for the period of the next cycle. Thus, the output voltage is a level which is proportional to the input frequency f = 1/T computed once for every c... View full abstract»

    The paper presents a factual account of the trip of the 1959 U. S. technical delegation in computers to the Soviet Union. It includes the itinerary, descriptions of specific Soviet computers, descriptions of certain computing centers, a discussion of Soviet computer-oriented education, and a description of current circuit and component development. In appendices are given the instruction repertoir... View full abstract»
