General Electric had a thriving computer division in the late 1950s and early 1960s (the time of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs IBM was Snow White and Burroughs, Control Data Corporation, Honeywell, RCA, Univac, NCR, and GE are usually considered the dwarves). Perhaps their biggest accomplishment was the creation, with the Bank of America, of the ERMA system for automating the processing of check clearing. This resulted in the creation of the magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) standards used on checks today. The main machine in the line was the GE-225. It used a 20-bit word, of which 13 bits could be used for an address. Along with the basic CPU the system could also include a floating-point unit, or a fixed-point decimal option with three 6-bit decimal digits per word. The machines were built using discrete transistors, with a typical machine including about 10,000 transistors and 20,000 diodes. They used core memory, and a standard 8k-word system held 186,000 magnetic cores.
