The console of the Lab’s IBM 7030 (STRETCH), which was delivered to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in March 1961. The 7030 was IBM’s response to the LARC (Livermore Advanced Research Computer) built by Remington Rand. It provided the largest memory for any machine then in use at the Laboratory. It used 72 bit words of which the last 8 bits were for Error Correction and Control.
