Ferranti Pegasus 2 The collection contains a set of important parts from a Pegasus computer. This was a valve based computer developed by Ferranti Ltd. around The collection contains all the input output elements of the machine. The computer used was a Ferranti PEGASUS computer. This has been achieved by exploiting a new technique called Autocode. The Autocode provides a simple means of presenting work to the computer; it is a form of computer shorthand which can be read directly by anyone, and with which it is possible to learn to write in a day or two without.

"Pegasus has the nicest ISP processor structure discussed in this section-perhaps in the book. It is included because it is probably the first machine to use an array of general registers as accumulators, multiplier-quotient registers, index registers, etc.".

  The Ferranti Pegasus Mark 1 computer from was the first computer used on the Sydney Opera House project. It was one of the earliest commercially produced computers available in the UK, made by the Manchester-based electronics manufacturer Ferranti Ltd, a company that was at the forefront of the UK’s emerging computer industry in the s. /6/ Ferranti Computer Systems Limited Ferranti Computer Systems Limited can trace its history back to when the Computer Group was formed to develope and manufacture computers after working with Manchester University on the creation of the worlds first stored programme computer.

The Pegasus Story discusses the origins of the Pegasus project from wartime know-how through to the involvement of Ferranti Ltd, giving tribute to the remarkable achievements of the individuals involved in the design and building of this vintage computer.

This Ferranti Pegasus computer, c. was designed by Christopher Strachey () while working at the National Research and Development Corporation (NRDC).

He based his design on his experiments while working with Elliot Bros., where he pioneered the idea of constructing computers from modular packages. Ferranti or Ferranti International plc was a major UK electrical engineering and equipment firm known primarily for defence electronics and power grid systems.

The Company was once a constituent of the FTSE Index but ceased trading in   The Ferranti Pegasus computer was developed in the early s by a team of former Elliott Brothers Ltd engineers using a technology pioneered in the Elliott/NRDC computer.

The engineering of Pegasus is outstanding. By there were around 30 Ferranti Pegasus computers in use The Argus was the first in the range to use integrated circuits and had considerably more computing power than the earlier machines.

It allowed the use of Fortran and, later, CORAL compilers and had huge success in real time applications. The Pegasus Story: A history of a vintage British computer, by Simon Lavington, London, Science Museum, ISBN Посилання. Ferranti Mark 1 at Computer50; Who Made the First Computer.
