Joint MIT--IBM Meeting on Memory-Core Measurement, October 13, 1953
Brown, David R.
MIT and IBM will share the core-testing program to obtain 150,000 good cores to January 1, 1954. MIT will perform two thirds of the testing, and IBM (High Street) one third. Cores must be tested at a rate of 15,000 tests per day beginning November 2. IBM will perform all plane testing. The specifications for General Ceramics cores are changed to accept [subscript r]V[subscript 1] from 0.090 volt to 0.120 volt. Accepted cores will be divided into two groups for plane assembly. Separate specifications will be written for cores to be supplied by RCA Victor.
