Radix sort[]

In the radix sort the least significant binary digit is used to separate the numbers into sub-sequences respective of their least significant binary values, followed by use of the next most significant digit within each sub-sequence to create additional sub-sequences and so on for each digit in the number.

"Robbins' April 1954 patent number 2674733 uses hardware logic circuits to perform the radix sort."
