AN/FSQ-7: the computer that shaped the Cold War by Bernd Ulmann

By Bernd Ulmann

One of the main extraordinary desktops ever was once the vacuum tube dependent behemoth AN/FSQ-7, which was once the center of the ''Semi automated flooring Environment''. Machines of this kind have been youngsters of the chilly conflict and had an important impression in politics. additionally they generated an enormous volume of spin-offs which nonetheless form our global. This publication specializes in the technological achievements and info of this incredible desktop and of its predecessor Whirlwind. a few of the advancements, starting from magnetic center reminiscence to facts transmission through mobile traces, are lined intimately with schematics, circuit descriptions and small programming examples.
 This e-book is a treasure trove for these attracted to the expertise of early electronic pcs and people drawn to the effect those machines had and also have on our present machine systems.
