Experiments on a three-core cell for high-speed memories
Raffel, J.; Bradspies, S.
The coincident-current magnetic-core memory was suggested in 1949 by Jay W. Forrester as a reliable, random-access storage medium. Development of the first working memory of this type, for the Memory Test Computer at M.I.T., established conclusively the superiority of such a memory over competitive systems and paved the way for others to exploit the new device.
