The B162149-A is a logic card from a GE-645 mainframe, the first system designed to run MIT's Multics operating system. The GE-645 was a variant of the GE-635, specially modified to run Multics by increasing the address space to allow for virtual memory. Unlike many systems developed in the late 1960s, the GE-645 was constructed almost entirely from discrete components.
The uncharacterized circuit card pictured here was originally part of a GE-645 installed at Bell Labs. Special thanks to Bill Eaton for donating this rare piece of computing history.
