Identifier: 16

Scope and Contents

MIT DIC 6345. Project Whirlwind Engineering Note E-413. Several core-selecting systems can be devised that offer better selection ratios than the standard 3-dimensional array. Improved selection ratios result in reduced storage access time but at the cost of considerably increased complexity of the driver circuits.
