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

By Bernd Ulmann

One of the main notable computers ever was once the vacuum tube established behemoth AN/FSQ-7, which was once the guts of the ''Semi automated flooring Environment''. Machines of this sort have been childrens of the chilly struggle and had an immense impact in politics. in addition they generated an enormous quantity of spin-offs which nonetheless form our international. This e-book specializes in the technological achievements and information of this great desktop and of its predecessor Whirlwind. a few of the advancements, starting from magnetic middle reminiscence to info transmission through phone strains, are lined intimately with schematics, circuit descriptions and small programming examples.
 This e-book is a treasure trove for these drawn to the know-how of early electronic pcs and people drawn to the impression those machines had and also have on our present desktop systems.
