Roots of Reliability

In the 1950s, David Muller left his mark - and his name - on some of CSL's earliest work on the reliability of computers and communications systems. Reliability became a long-running theme throughout the laboratory's history.

The Reed-Muller Codes

The theory of Reed-Muller Codes had a major impact on error-control coding theory. These codes later formed the basis for the coding systems used in modern code-division multiple access digital cellular technology.

The RMC Network

The Reed-Muller Canonical Network, a standardized formulation of Boolean circuits, is still used today for logic verificationdetermining whether circuits have been correctly designed.

Muller's Building Block

The Muller C-Element became a basic building block for self-timed asynchronous circuits.
