IBM System/360 - Processor Logic Circuit Boards, Magnetic Core, & SLT Fabrication Paperweight - One of a Kind
About this Artwork:
This artwork celebrates the creation of the IBM System/360 computer family. The IBM System/360 was one of the most significant milestones in the computer industry. The myriad of new technology firsts is amazing. The background of this artwork is the control panel of an IBM System/360. It includes three processor logic cards that were used in the System/360 CPU. The second card is identical to the first but has had the aluminum covers removed so the circuit logic can be seen. The Bottom card includes true integrated circuits made especially for the System/360 by Texas Instruments. The artwork also includes a Solid Logic Technology (SLT) paperweight that shows the major steps of fabricating SLTs. The back of the artwork has lots of information on the System/360 and its importance to the computer industry. Also, pictures and information take one of the Solid Logic Technology (SLT) chips and explains the physical chip, and compare it to its logical circuit diagram. Magnetic Core technology is also explained.
The artwork is 9"x20" in a black shadow box frame, with glass. All framing materials are acid-free. A narrative about the artwork that includes the artist’s signature is placed on the back of the artwork.
