A Device for Logic Information Processing.
Levinskiy, L. S.; Vissonova, I. A.
Two essential components of the information-logic problem are: (1) choosing some known part of the total information block for parallel review of the entire block and (2) parallel logic processing of a sequence of codes. The described device fulfills these essential components thereby improving information processing and increasing the speed of the digital computer operation. Computers can solve these problems with no special device but the process is slow and requires a complex program. However, by complicating the equipment to some extent, the programming system can be simplified. The basic demands made on the device are: (1) associative retrieval as opposed to address retrieval, (2) recording and counting by lines and columns, (3) availability of any part of the information and (4) performing logic operations in a matrix. A functional description of the device and its command systems, as well as an explanation of its fundamental components is given. (Author/NH)
