MM11-E and MM1-F core memories
They were very similar - both 4K word (8K bytes), and with most of their boards in common. The MM11-F was capable of interleaving (although this capability was then made available to the MM11-E as well); it also had a parity version available, the MM11-FP (which used a 4Kx18 core plane, instead of the 4Kx16 used in the MM11-E and MM11-F).
Both consisted of a quad-width H207 (non-parity) or H210 (parity) core plane board, along with a number of dual- and single-width cards (all extended-length), plugged into a custom-wired quad system unit. The MM11-F and MM11-FP used the same backplane; only the board set was slightly different
These are the board locations for the MM11-E, -F and -FP (as seen from the board side of the backplane):
|Connector||Slot 4||Slot 3||Slot 2||Slot 1|
++ = G225 (MM11-E) or G108 (MM11-FP)
@ = MM11-E only
% = MM11-F and -FP only
! = Possibly the later M1091
The M1091 could be used in the MM11-E as well as the MM11-F; it appears that later units of the MM11-E shipped with the M1091. The difference between the M109 and M1091 is the addition of additional jumpers to allow interleaving.
