CPU
The UNIVAC 418 was a 18 bits binary computer, using one's complement arithmetic. The ALU was fundamentally subtractive, addition being carried out by subtracting the one's complement of the number to be added. This may appear rather strange, but the subtractive adder reduces the chance of getting negative zero in normal operations.(help us)
