Aachen or Bad Aachen, French and traditional English: Aix-la-Chapelle, is a spa and border city.
ALGOL 58, originally known as IAL, is one of the family of ALGOL computer programming languages.
Berlin is the capital and the largest city of Germany, as well as one of its 16 constituent states.
The clock rate typically refers to the frequency at which a chip like a central processing unit (CPU), one core of a multi-core processor, is running and is used as an indicator of the processor's speed.
A computer is a device that can be instructed to carry out sequences of arithmetic or logical operations automatically via computer programming.
Drum memory was a magnetic data storage device invented by Gustav Tauschek in 1932 in Austria.
In electronics, a flip-flop or latch is a circuit that has two stable states and can be used to store state information.
German (Deutsch) is a West Germanic language that is mainly spoken in Central Europe.
Heinz Rutishauser (30 January 1918 – 10 November 1970) was a Swiss mathematician and a pioneer of modern numerical mathematics and computer science.
Heinz Zemanek (1 January 1920 – 16 July 2014) was an Austrian computer pioneer who led the development, from 1954 to 1958, of one of the first complete transistorised computers on the European continent.
The hertz (symbol: Hz) is the derived unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI) and is defined as one cycle per second.
The history of computing hardware covers the developments from early simple devices to aid calculation to modern day computers.

Mailüfterl is a nickname for the Austrian Binär dezimaler Volltransistor-Rechenautomat (binary-decimal fully transistorized computing automaton), an early transistorized computer.
A power supply is an electrical device that supplies electric power to an electrical load.
A punched card or punch card is a piece of stiff paper that can be used to contain digital data represented by the presence or absence of holes in predefined positions.
Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of computer data storage that stores data and machine code currently being used.
In electronics, a vacuum tube, an electron tube, or just a tube (North America), or valve (Britain and some other regions) is a device that controls electric current between electrodes in an evacuated container.
