In 1971, engineer Ray Holt wrote a paper titled Architecture of a Microprocessor describing his experience helping to design what is alleged as the first microprocessor for the Navy’s F-14. It was accepted by “Computer Design,” but the Navy would not approve publication citing national security concerns. It took another 27 years before it was finally published in 1998.
