Projeto e Arquitetura do System/360

O documento abaixo, me foi passado por Wilhelm G. Spruth, através de troca de e-mail que tivemos entre os meses de Julho/Agosto de 2011.
Wilhem, hoje com 83 anos, e' PHD, atua no Instituto de Computação da Alemanha e foi um dos gerentes de projeto do S/360.

O documento original da arquitetura do S/360 esta no link  
http://www.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/cs/Literature/History/Amdahl.pdf  . 

Esse é o DNA do IBM Mainframe.  


Veja a íntegra do primeiro e-mail que trocamos e demais informações sobre o projeto e a participação dele.
Ao final, Wilhelm adiciona outros livros e documentos que produziu mais recentemente, disponíveis em seu site.

Hallo,

I am 81 years, and am serving as an adjunct professor at both Tuebingen 
and Leipzig universities, giving classroom lectures, supervising 
bachelor, master, and PH.D. thesis work, and doing some original 
research. I joined IBM in 1949 in Poughkeepsie, starting work on the 
Sabre Airline Reservation system.

On April 7, 1963, IBM announced S/360, a total of 52 products. I was 
Project manager for one of those, the IBM 7772 Audio Response Unit. Thus 
I have known Amdahl, Blaauw, Brooks and Evans personally.

The original paper Amdahl, G.A. Blaauw, F.P. Brooks ; " Architecture of 
the IBM System/360". IBM Journal of Research and Development, Vol. 8, 
no.2 (April 1964), p. 87-101, can be downloaded from

The following book availailable from Amazon covers the mainframe switch 
from bipolar to CMOS technology:

Wilhelm G. Spruth: The Design of a Microprocessor. Publisher: Springer; 
1 edition (November 14, 1989), ISBN-10: 3540513957, ISBN-13: 978-3540513957

You may want to read a report I published recently:

I recently gave a talk: The future of the mainframe. You can download it
