Abstract:

The report describes a study to determine which solid state memory technique is most promising for use in building a reasonably-priced, ruggedized, random access, 1 billion -bit mass memory. Those techniques currently under development were identified. These included LSI, beam accessed, magnetic shift register, ferroacoustic, and array memory techniques. A thorough search of the literature was conducted, and a memory system model was constructed for each technique that showed suitability for use in a mass memory. Six models were constructed bubble, Soniscan, optical, DOT, LSI, and oligatomic. The models were rated and compared, indicating that the magnetic bubble technique was likely to prove the most satisfactory. A five-year research and development plan was generated to indicate the steps required to reach the goal of a militarized 1 billion -bit random-access memory using the magnetic bubble technique.
