 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Memo M-2736. A memory system in which the memory functions (remanence) and the selection function (nonlinearity) are performed in separate cores may have the following advantages over the present (coincident-current) system: 1) Much broader tolerances on core acceptability 2) Reduced noise out of the memory array 3) Larger signals out of memory 4) Shorter memory cycle time Some of the costs may be: 1) Two or three times as many cores required 2) More...
