The univac 1107 meet the univac 1107 thin film memory computer back in the '60s, the seven (as all the hip computer scientists called it) was on the cutting edge of technology. The 1108 was introduced in 1964 integrated circuits replaced the thin film memory that the univac 1107 used for register storage smaller and faster cores, compared to the 1107, were used for main memory. On this edition of this week in tech history, chris reminds us of the introduction of the univac 1107, a single computer, that took up an entire room. The 1107 was installed on the first floor of the quail building, shown above in a photo taken around 1966 by bill patterson this is the same building which previously housed case's univac i and burroughs 220 computers.

The universal automatic computer or univac was a computer milestone achieved by dr presper eckert and dr john mauchly, the team that invented the eniac computer john presper eckert and john mauchly, after leaving the academic environment of the moore school of engineering to start their own.
A high-speed logic simulation system of programs with the ability to simulate logic faults has been implemented for the univac (r) 1107 computer system the central simulator program is capable of achieving an average speed of less than one-half microsecond per logical element and has a capacity of up to 10,000 logical components, with a simulated memory of 256 bytes.

The 1107 used thin film memory for its high-speed registers though touted as “the most significant technological achievement since solid-state circuitry,” it didn’t last long.
The first computer i ever used was a univac 1107, and for more than a decade stretching from 1967 through 1978, most of my programming was oriented toward those machines, spanning four generations of hardware: the 1107, 1108, 1110, and 1100/80 (which i used briefly to develop microprocessor software. The univac 1108 was the second member of sperry rand's univac 1100 series of computers, introduced in 1964 integrated circuits replaced the thin film memory that the univac 1107 used for register storage. The univac 1100/2200 series is a series of compatible 36-bit computer systems, beginning with the univac 1107 in 1962, initially made by sperry rand the series continues to be supported today by unisys corporation as the clearpath dorado series.
