What’s 500 times faster than a sliderule? (Mar, 1953)

In the mid 50′s every company on earth made their own computers.

What’s 500 times faster than a sliderule?

Today’s quick answer to mathematical problems for engineers and designers is GEDA — the Goodyear Electronic Differential Analyzer. GEDA uses voltages and wave forms to compute in an hour the most complex math problems that would take 500 man-hours or more, using slide rule methods—acts as an “electrical brain” that can solve any problem from trajectories of space rockets to improvement of workflow through factories.

The newest GEDA, Model L3, is smaller, more compact and easier to operate than other electronic computers—occupies no more space than the average desk. After brief instruction, clerical workers are able to operate GEDA.

A major supplier of computing equipment, Goodyear Aircraft has manufactured GEDA analyzers for five years—operates one of industry’s largest computer application laboratories —and is now ready to supply the newest GEDA to industry and government.
Consider the possible applications in your plant for GEDA, the Goodyear Electronic Differential Analyzer. Then write for full information to: Goodyear Aircraft Corporation, Department 241, Akron 15, Ohio.
