- UNIVAC 1101

The UNIVAC 1101, or ERA 1101, was a computer system designed by Engineering Research Associates (ERA) and built by the Remington Rand corporation in the 1950s. It was the first stored program computer in the U.S. that was moved from its site of manufacture and successfully installed at a distant site. Remington Rand used the 1101's architecture as the basis for a series of machines into the 1960s. History Codebreaking ERA was formed from a group of code-breakers working for the United States Navy during World War II. The team had built a number of code breaking machines, similar to the more famous Colossus computer in England, but designed to attack Japanese codes. After the war the Navy was interested in keeping the team together even though they had to formally be turned out of Navy service. The result was ERA, which formed in St. Paul, Minnesota in the hangars of a former Chase Aircraft shadow factory. After the war, the team continued to build codebreaking machines, targeted [read more...]

- High brightness monitor

A high brightness monitor, also known as a sunlight readable monitor or VHB (very high brightness) monitor is a computer monitor designed to operate in very bright environments, for example in broad daylight. High brightness monitors are typically used commercially in kiosks and out-of-home advertising. [read more...]

- Ad Lib, Inc.

This page is about the (now defunct) sound card company based in Quebec City, Canada, named Ad Lib, Inc. — not to be mistaken with the software company Adlib Software or Adlib Information systems [1]. See ad lib for information on the Latin phrase. Founded by Martin Prevel, a former professor of music and vice-dean of the music department at the Université Laval, Ad Lib, Inc. was a manufacturer of sound cards and other computer equipment. The company's best known product, the AdLib Music Synthesizer Card (ALMSC), or simply the AdLib as it was called, was the first add-on sound card (on compatibles) to achieve widespread game-developer acceptance, becoming the first de facto standard for audio-reproduction. Today the AdLib's functionality can be recreated with emulators such as AdPlug and VDMSound (the latter is no longer supported but its code has been incorporated into DOSBox). Marketing After development work on the ALMSC had concluded, Prevel struggled to engage the [read more...]

- Feature connector

The Feature connector was an internal connector found mostly in some older VESA Local Bus, ISA and PCI graphics cards, but also on some early AGP ones. It was intended for use by devices which needed to exchange large amounts of data with the graphics card without hogging a computer system's CPU or data bus, such as TV tuner cards, video capture cards, MPEG video decoders, first generation 3D graphic accelerator cards and the such. Several standard existed for feature connectors, depending on the bus and graphics card type. Most of them were simply an 8, 16 or 32-bit wide internal connector, transferring data from and to the graphics card to another device, bypassing the system's CPU and memory completely. Their speeds often far exceeded the speed of normal ISA or even early PCI buses, e.g. 40 MByte/s for a standard ISA-based SVGA, up to 150 MByte/s for a PCI or VESA-based one, while the standard 16 bit ISA bus ran at ~5.3 MByte/s and the VESA bus at up to 160 MByte/s bandwidth.
