QuoteThe IBM Card-Programmed Electronic Calculator or CPC was announced by IBM in May 1949. Later that year an improved machine, the CPC-II, was also announced.
QuoteThis view shows a Card Programmed Calculator (CPC) system. It was built by IBM out of business machine parts. The printer is an IBM 418 accounting machine. The machine in the back on the left is an IBM 605 accounting calculating unit. The machine on the right is a card punch IBM 527. All three machines were connected by cables as shown on the right side of the picture. Visible to the left of the printer are four IBM 941 storage units.

QuoteThis assembly of early electronic equipment is the IBM Card-Programmed Electronic Calculator (CPC). Announced on May 20, 1949, the new machine was "capable of handling problems of a sequential nature, in which a long series of arithmetical steps must be performed to obtain a single solution." Although designed to be particularly useful for evaluating long engineering formulas, the CPC later was used for large accounting applications as well.
