Research Group At Comp America Announces Breakthrough: The Production Of A 50 Teraherz "TINY Programmable Calculator"
(FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION)
Comp America's advanced research team announced that while it has examined the function of Jack Shulman's TCAP over the course of the past year, it recently demonstrated that it had successfully completed assembly and test of a full four function programmable calculator with: a 50 Terahertz execution rate, over 25,000 times faster than the CPU chips used in IBM's fastest supercomputer, using TCAP Semiconductors.
Ian Johnson, head of the "TCAP Calculator" Group, explained:
"We decided to see if we could make several gates using multiple TCAP structures. The first one was over six weeks in the making, an AND gate. After that, the Or, XOR, NOR, and other boolean functions were easy, each taking only about a week apiece. We assembled these using from 3 to 7 Alumina/Silicon - Silver Alkane TCAP switches, and associated 'logic-balancers' used to control the flow of electrons into and out of the TCAPs."
"Once we had a few dozen of each, we assembled several test circuits. Finally, we decided to use the common design of a four function calculator supporting up to 16 digits (96 bits). Using one of our smaller TCAP memory boards, in fact, one of the originals once depicted on the cover of UFO Magazine as a 'Transistor from Outer Space' euphemistically, we attached almost our entire supply of these boolean gates, simulating a simple four function (Add, Subtract, Multiply and Divide, and program fetch, and loop control) calculator with about 4 megabytes of TCAPram as working storage, the balance unused. When we were done, using a PC, we entered into this programmable calculator a number of long stored program routines into the TCAPram and started our calculator."
"We wrote the calculator stored-program to run millions of trillions of loops, while we timed them, the sequences added and performed other math on lists of numbers, comparing the results with previously stored 'success' values, and totaling the number of successes and errors. Aside from a few accidental 'zero divides' that were introduced more than likely by our excitement, we debugged the program and then were able to run over 5000 Trillion Logical Steps in just under 100 seconds, at the maximum speed the calculation could be performed by the device, which we had named 'Alan-T1' (after Alan Turing). Naturally, 'Alan-T1' produced nearly no heat at all during its operation, worked flawlessly, and accomplished a feat we believe has never before been achieved by humankind - the linear calculation of nearly 5000 Billion mathematical operations in a single second by a single linear processing computer while running each instruction in series, one at a time. We believe that the next step would be to add more complex math and string processing instructions, sorts, and other features, to produce a complete computer CPU. Then, we can work on the idea of performing operations in parallel and optimizing memory and pipeline functions."
Jack Shulman, busy on other projects, indicated: "The TCAP is here and now, it obsoletes most other forms of molecular computing due to it's achieving these unheard of speeds by leveraging the extreme speed of an electron at it's lowest orbit of a Silver Atom. Quantum Computing requires the time to stop and then reverse the spin of an electron - it consumes atomic power and it is a brute force approach. Quantum Computing is weak because it requires a 'fist in the electron's face' method for quantizing a qubit of electrons. TCAP Computing, on the other hand, simply GLIDES SINGLE ELECTRONS FROM ONE VERY TINY ORBIT TO A SOMEWHAT HIGHER ORBIT AROUND AN ATOMIC NUCLEUS. WE BELIEVE IT WILL ECLIPSE ANY AND ALL OTHER FORMS OF SUBATOMIC COMPUTING BECAUSE WE ARE NOW EXPLORING DIVIT TRAPPED BOND MANIPULATION USING MUONS, PARTICLES WHICH EXIST ONLY FOR VERY LIMITED PERIODS OF TIME IN NATURE, BEFORE DECAYING, BUT WHICH CAN BE USED TO REDUCE THE RADIUS OF AN ELECTRON'S ORBIT EVEN FASTER THAN AN ELECTRON TRAP DOES THE OPPOSITE. COMBINING THE TWO COULD RESULT IN EXTRAORDINARY SPEEDS IN THE OPERATION OF SUCH 'ELECTRON-MUONIC ORBITAL QUANTUM MANIPULATION' DEVICES, SUCH SHOULD SHOCK THE WIZARDS AT IBM WHO CLEARLY ARE LOOKING TO ATTEMPT TO WORK WITH INDIVIDUAL ELECTRONS, AS IF THEY ARE UNWILLING TO LOOK AT THE ATOMIC STRUCTURE AND THE BONDING OF ATOMS ITSELF AS SOMETHING OF A COMPUTERIZED ACCELERATOR. It's like the theory of martial arts, it's easier to direct your opponent's attack slightly to one side or the other, than it is to try to stop the full force of it through confrontation. That is the basic reason why electron divit traps work so effectively."
A spokesperson suggested that researchers at IBM had apparently been ignoring both the Army's 1947 find and Jack's TCAP for a long time because of an "NIH" complex (the tendancy to ignore things they did not themselves, at IBM, invent). The spokesperson suggested that IBM may have developed a fixation on the manipulation of individual particles (which, Jack indicated, are actually composed of smaller subsystems, resonant wave forms, and therefore, are not even being used most efficiently even when used for Quantum computing), forgetting that particle manipulation costs energy and is exceedingly difficult, while atomic structures in a weak bond tended to fall 'within nature' and if 'guided properly' the subatomic components of a natural 'system' like a bond species manipulation, require less energy, could take place faster, and required less relative sophistication producing nearly no heat. The manipulation of a TCAP to make it work involved subtle manipulation of an orbital radius, rather than wholehearted manipulation of groups of individual electrons, such as was found in a Quantum Qubit machine.
Jack indicated that the support fields needed to manufacture a Quantum Qubit computer fell far short of the needs of computation, while providing some computation needs, completely ignored MOST such needs, while the simple bonds of a TCAP array, were in every way, perfect metaphors for today's computer logic and storage memory, making the TCAP "the Winner and New Champion" of the new supercomputing era.
By comparison to the fastest IBM Power Parallel Supercomputer recently sold to the Department of Energy, the A C C / CompAmerica TCAP Tiny Programmable Calculator, even while only being able to add, subtract, multiply and/or divide, and loop, was estimated to be over 25,000 TIMES FASTER when running individual program steps in series, than IBM's Power Parallel 6000, while occupying 1/1000th of the space, and beating even the best estimates of the future performance of the IBM cubit research device, by a factor of 200 times.
Jack Shulman indicated that he was proud of the feat, and that he had in fact funded the test as a precursor towards wholehearted funding of TCAP Computing by his private think tank, known only as the 'V-group'.
"V is for Victory!" Jack Shulman quipped after the public demonstration, which took place at the company's lab in Central New Jersey.
