IMP/TIP Memory Retrofit Schedule (Revision 1)

This revision contains two major changes to RFC #434. First, all

retrofits scheduled prior to February first have been completed and are

therefore removed from the schedule. Second, the CCA retrofit has been

rescheduled from 3/20 to 2/28.

The revised text of RFC # 434 follows:

During the first several month of 1973 we will be retrofitting each IMP

and TIP with additional core memory. At the end of the retrofit

program, the memory sizes of the various machines will be as follows:

IMP (516 or 316) - 16K words

TIP - 28K words

TIP with Magnetic Tape Option - 32K words

In addition, the expansion of the TIP core memory will necessitate

enlarging the TIP to two cabinets.

Listed below is the schedule for the remaining retrofits. We have

arranged this schedule to coincide with usual monthly Preventive

Maintenance at each site so as to minimize user inconvenience, but the

work required will frequently require the machines to be down longer

than normal. I will issue additional RFC's updating this schedule as

necessary.

Any site which anticipates difficulty with the expansion of TIP size,

and thus the floor space requirement, should contact Hawley Rising (BBN)
