Abstract : The authors describe the design and performance of a digital differential analyzer using magnetostrictive delay lines as memory elements. The authors claim that such a memory has the advantages of a high speed ferrite core memory and the economy of a magnetic drum. The digital differential analyzer has the following parameters: 32 integrators, binary operational code, 20 bit words, 250 KHz cycle rate, 400 operations per second, and error not exceeding 0.01%. The operational program and the initial conditions are entered manually through switches on a control console. The data entry can be manual, using decimal or binary codes, or automatic. The digital differential analyzer consists of a memory, computational unit, control unit, input and output equipment, control console and code converters. Of particular interest is the design and performance of the memory. The memory uses eight magnetostrictive delay lines.
