Mathatronics Auxiliary Program Storage Unit Announcement

The Mathatronics APS is a small desk-sized unit that contains a magnetic core memory unit and adds additional memory registers and program step storage to the Mathatron 8-48 electronic calculator. A small auxiliary keyboard allows the operator to direct the operation of the APS. Along with the additional register and program step storage, the APS unit provides the capability for up to 18 pre-wired 48-step program ROMs (Read-Only Memories) which can be plugged into the APS to provide specialized functions.
