IBM 1620 Project Goals

To collect and preserve IBM 1620 material including hardware, software, documentation, photos, marketing collateral, personal accounts, etc.

To restore Computer History Museum's IBM 1620 Model 1 machine to full operation using a PC-based emulator for the missing peripherals.

To develop a fully functional, web-based, graphical IBM 1620 simulator.

To share the IBM 1620 historic collection via the web.

The IBM 1620 Project is well under way and can use your help.

We are currently looking for:

  • IBM employees who worked on the IBM 1620 (especially development engineers).

  • IBM 1620 Model 1 Level G logic diagrams.

  • IBM 1620 Model 1 core memory stack.

  • IBM 1620 Model 1 SMS cards.

  • IBM 1622 card reader/punch.

  • IBM 1621 paper tape reader/punch.
If you have any IBM 1620 items (particularly those listed above) or know someone who might, please contact us.

Note that Computer History Museum does not pay for historic artifacts. However; since Computer History Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent possible.
