Welcome to the Analog Computer Museum and History Center
What is an analog computer?    Simply, an analog computer is a computing device that has two distinguishing characteristics:
By constrast, a digital computer can only perform sequential (one at a time) operations, and operates on discrete (noncontinuous) numbers.
So, why have a museum?    Because today analog computers are virtually unknown.
Analog computers have a long history dating back to prehistory, but with the recent development of the microprocessor these computers and their technology has been discarded and is quickly being lost to history.
Our mission is to help preserve some of this technology and to provide a source of information for people that want to use this technology.
