    Description

    Apollo-Era Coincident Current Core Memory Plane. A fascinating example of early random access memory (RAM) like the type that was used in the Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC). A close-up view of the memory plane reveals the wires threading the doughnut-shaped ceramic magnetic cores. Arrangement of the wiring through the cores allows the computer to address any one of the cores in the memory plane (representing a single bit as 0 or 1). It's amazing to think how far we have advanced past this seemingly-primitive 5" square circuit board. Excellent condition.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
