Digibarn Parts: Data General Nova Core Memory
We are grateful to Bob A. Schelfhout Aubertijn for sending us this "mattress" of core memory from an early 1970s Data General Nova machine. This has to be some of the highest density core and fascinating to see it alongside the up and coming integrated circut technology, which would soon supplant core as the storage medium of choice. Below you can see Ken Sumrall, who works with the Computer History Museum, opening up the cover plate to expose the core mattress. Bob writes about his donation:
