    Transistor circuitry is presented that enables the construction of a digital computer which will operate at a clock frequency of 200 kc or less. The circuitry employs readily available germanium or silicon junction transistors of the type used in audio-frequency circuit work. A new system of diode gating is also presented as a necessary part of the circuit philosophy. No vacuum tubes are required ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a device useful for the permanent storage of digital information which ordinarily is not to be altered once it is stored. The device utilizes a large magnetic-core matrix switch, of a type described by Rajchman, in conjunction with a storage system used with the Bell Computer, Model VI, to obtain permanent storage capacities up to about a million bits. The information is store... View full abstract»

    G.R. Partridge, author of the paper, "A Transistorized Pulse Code Modulator," which appeared on pages 7-12 of the December, 1954 issue of the IRE Transactions on Electronic Computers, has called attention to the following omission. The quantizing system described in the first part of the paper was disclosed in United States Patent 2,612,550 (September, 1952) issued to G.T. Jacobi of the General El... View full abstract»

    Several functional arrangements useful in conjunction with a parallel magnetic-drum memory are described with general reference to their application in an experimental telephone-switching system. The functions included are detection and registration of input information, counting, timing, transfer of information from one drum location to another, and translation of information from one form to ano...

    In a certain operation a digital computer was used as an element of a control system to smooth consecutive observational data. The method of smoothing consisted of predicting from past smoothed values and then combining the prediction with the next observation. In this paper an analysis of the stability of this useful method is made, and an explicit formula of the range of the parameters for which... View full abstract»

    The electronic computer field continues to expand at a rapid rate. New developments, applications, and publications are too numerous for one person to keep informed of all aspects. In this review a complete report will not be attempted, but some highlights and selected references will be reported. View full abstract»
