9780262050289: High-Speed Computing Devices (Charles Babbage Institute Reprint)

This is the definitive modern sourcebook on the technologies from which the computer industry sprang. Widely read, it gave impetus to technical developments both in the United States and abroad. It presents a clear, organized picture of computing concepts, techniques, machinery, and components in use as of 1950, with emphasis on electronic high-speed computing. The material is elaborately referenced and contains a multitude of diagrams and tables. One particularly significant table lists all the computers of the era-including the famous EDVAC, UNIVAC, BINAC, and Mark III-with their specifications. This first compendium of United States computer technology was created by a research team that grew out of the U.S. Navy's wartime cryptologic establishment. High-Speed Computing Devices is Volume IV in the Charles Babbage Institute Reprint Series and was originally published in 1950 by McGraw-Hill.
