By Bernd Ulmann

One of the main extraordinary desktops ever was once the vacuum tube established behemoth AN/FSQ-7, which was once the center of the ''Semi automated floor Environment''. Machines of this sort have been childrens of the chilly conflict and had a big impression in politics. additionally they generated an enormous quantity of spin-offs which nonetheless form our international. This e-book specializes in the technological achievements and info of this very good computer and of its predecessor Whirlwind. a number of the advancements, starting from magnetic center reminiscence to information transmission through cell traces, are coated intimately with schematics, circuit descriptions and small programming examples.
 This ebook is a treasure trove for these attracted to the know-how of early electronic pcs and people attracted to the effect those machines had and now have on our present computing device systems.
