BARK (computer)

BARK was an early electromechanical .

BARK was built using standard telephone relays, implementing a 32-bit binary machine.

It could perform addition in 150 ms and multiplication in 250 ms.

It had a memory with 50 registers and 100 constants.

It was later expanded to double the memory.

Howard Aiken stated in reference to BARK “This is the first I have seen outside Harvard that actually works.”
