Unique id/year of acquisition: 75/99
Name: Titan cards
Class: computer
Machine: Titan
Notes:
Titan was essentially a slightly cut down Atlas computer. The Atlas was made of boxes each of which had fifty such boards in, and altogether there were 10 boxes to a rack and 3 racks in the case of the Titan. It illustrates the circuit techniques of the time - using standard transistors, individual diodes, individual resistors - i.e. transistors had been invented but integrated circuits had not. The machines could be repaired easily due to interchangeability of parts. The different board types were numbered according to the well-known resistor colour code (the three plastic tabs on one side).
