Abstract : A magnetic tape translator for converting information on a magnetic tape having a format of short pulses and long pulses into the more unusual format of 1's and 0's, respectively is described. This is achieved by the use of a unique logic circuit employing a plurality of flip-flop devices, multivibrators and AND gates. The circuit has the advantage of being relatively insensitive to noise and may be used for 10-bit words.
