The Computer Designed To Die In Microseconds

I found this fascinating story about a computerized telemetry system which was designed to be placed in the heart of a nuclear warhead, replacing the plutonium pit in a test device. I'm not 100% sure this was flown because the documentation disappears about 20 years ago, which is likely to be the case if it was actually used in a test.
