    A survey has been made of real-time electronic analog computer (differential analyzer) installations. This survey was conducted (1) so that a directory of the installations could be compiled and (2) so that various data regarding the installations could be made available for analysis. The survey was conducted by a mail questionnaire. Information was obtained regarding size of installation, size of staff, weekly usage of the equipment, age of installation, and availability to outside organizations from 96 installations havig a total of 8,320 computer amplifiers. The results of the survey have been analyzed and are presented in this paper, together with the directory. View full abstract»

    The requirements for a digital computer for use in an operational flight trainer are presented with emphasis being placed on the real-time aspects of the problem. The general purpose digital computer is shown to be inadequate for this purpose and a special purpose digital computer is described which meets the requirements. View full abstract»

    A diode muliplexer switch is described for time-sharing 64 analog voltages in a digital computer application. Apart from its relative simplicity and economy, the multiplexer characteristics of microsecond switching speeds, maximum settling time of 133 microseconds for a 10-volt operating range, and accuracies of better than 1 per cent full scale are confirmed both by theoretical equations and by experimental results.

    The properties of binary counters which utilize non-transient storage elements for the count information are presented. The four possible sets of logical connections between the two storage elements necessary for each stage are described. The binary numbers represented in the storage elements are shown to be the actual count in one set of elements and in the other set a Gray code representation of twice the actual count. Examples of bi-directional counters are given. View full abstract»

  • A Variable Binary Scaler

    The binary elements of a counter or ``scaler'' may be interconnected in many ways. This paper discusses a class of inter-connections in which some elements are ``forward-counting'' and some are ``reverse-counting.'' By changing the interconnections any arbitrary integral scaling ratio (up to the counter capacity) may be obtained. View full abstract»
