Computer Development at Fujitsu

This talk will examine historical computer developments at Fujitsu, ranging from the company's early machines in the 1950s to the collaborative development project with Amdahl Corporation in 1980. These historical machines cover a wide spectrum of technologies: relays, Parametrons (with original Japanese components), transistors, and full LSI implementations (Amdahl Project). While many software advances were also made, this talk is more oriented towards a critical evaluation of hardware and device technologies than to software/operating system aspects. A video segment will be shown that demonstrates a relay computer made in 1959 which is still functional today at the Fujitsu computer museum.
