Meeting to Decide MTC Memory Selection Scheme, September 16, 1953
Hosier, W. A.; Bagley, P. R.
To help settle some of the questions raised by the prospect of having a 4096-register magnetic memory in MTC (See Memorandum M-2361), this meeting of MTC personnel and programmer was arranged. Opinion was heavily in favor of a bank-switching instruction which could include drum fields as banks. Certain other features desirable from a programming standpoint were also brought up.
