A Comparison Between Square-Loop Metals and Ferrites for High-Speed Pulsed Operation, 1954 February 04

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Memo M-2602. Metals and ferrites with rectangular hysteresis loops are used in magnetic amplifiers, switching networks, and data-storage systems. In these applications, the large-signal pulse response is most important. To reduce the effect of eddy currents, metals have been rolled to ultra-thin gage and high-resistivity ferrites have been used. By these techniques, eddy currents have been reduced to the point where relaxation effects limit the response time...

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents

MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Memo M-2167.

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Engineering Note E-529. Modification of the driving scheme during either the READ or the WRITE part of the READ-WRITE cycle would allow unidirectional current pulses in the rows and columns of a magnetic-matrix memory. This modification involves driving of all but the selected row and column during the modified part of the cycle. It requires additional low-level switching equipment and much larger total driving current, but with a tube-driven array, it...

Nondestructive Sensing of Magnetic Cores, 1952 March 24

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 16
Scope and Contents MIT DIC 6889. Project Whirlwind Engineering Note E-454-1. A "Nondestructive" method for sensing the information state of magnetic-memory cores is under development. This new method involves the use of a quadrature magnetic field which, when pulsed, produces an output voltage. The polarity of the output voltage contains the information—a positive output pulse represents a ONE, and a negative pulse a ZERO. Reading in this manner can be repeated indefinately without destroying the information...
