The characteristics of this computer are presented along with contemplated improvements. A list of some of the actual problems handled is also included. 
A Historical Overview of Computer Architecture
Computer architecture concentrates on the logical aspects of computer design as opposed to the physical or electronic aspects, which has yielded systems that are easier to use and applicable to a broader range of automatic control problems. Expand
Microprogramming and its relationship to emulation and technology
It is shown how the structure of microprogrammed processors has been shaped primarily by two factors: the state of (semiconductor) technology and the task of emulation. Expand
A Comparative Study on Common Errors in Rules Governing Complex Event Processing Systems
Despite the well-established effectiveness of Complex Event Processing (CEP) in flagging complex events for real-time decision making, the rules which define event-driven behavior can be challengingExpand
Tracing the ‘grey literature’ of poster presentations: a mapping review

If the aim of poster presentation is to share and discuss information with others, then the limitations of poster abstracts and questions raised in the retrieved literature suggest that further efforts are required to make this more effective. Expand
The Sketchpad Window
Sketchpad and the computer-aided architectural design programs that evolved from it helped to facilitate the growing symbiotic relationship between the architect and theComputer. Expand
Simulation temps réel de dispositifs électrotechniques
Les controleurs industriels font l’objet de changements de parametres, de modifications, d’ameliorations en permanence. Ils subissent les evolutions technologiques aussi bien materielles queExpand
Debugging in the (very) large
Windows Error Reporting (WER) takes advantage of its scale to use error statistics as a tool in debugging; this allows developers to isolate bugs that cannot be found at smaller scale. Expand
Debugging in the (very) large: ten years of implementation and experience
Windows Error Reporting (WER) is a distributed system that automates the processing of error reports coming from an installed base of a billion machines, taking advantage of its scale to use error statistics as a tool in debugging. Expand
The Effects-of Emerging Technology and Emulation
The structure of microprogrammed processors is largely determined by the state of (semiconductor) technology and the requirements of the task of emulation. We discuss the impact of LSI components onExpand
A sequencing-based taxonomy of I/0 systems and review of historical machines
A review of historical machines demonstrates the need for a more comprehensive categorization than previously published and reveals the historical firsts of I/O interrupts in the NBS DYSEAC, DMA in the IBM SAGE (AN/FSQ-7), the interrupt vector concept in the Lincoln Labs TX-2, and fully symmetric I/o in the Burroughs D-825 multiprocessor.
