Google ' acoustic delay line memory ' .After two hours of googling, I would recommend reading this persons comment from below the video, before doing the same:
I have a degree in computer science and electrical engineering, have been working professionally in the field for over 20 years, and I have no clue how that coil stores bits.
Ummm.... As I said, I googled for two hours.Google ' acoustic delay line memory ' .
There is a mercury column version as well
Your effort is appreciated.... I googled for two hours.
My brain almost exploded......
From piano wire to silicon processors. Who would have thought ...? Thanks.One advantage of delay line memory is that the ALU need only be a one bit serial processor. Another is that CORDIC can be applied to compute the arithmetic +, −, ×, ÷ and √ using shift registers and two serial adders alone. Later, with the addition of diode array lookup tables, all the transcendental functions could be implemented.
RPN and CORDIC went on to be used in the HP calculator range.
CORDIC was implemented in all the intel 80x87 FPU coprocessors.
By 1926 the company name changed to The DeVilbiss Company as their product lines continued to expand to include air compressors.
