Many types of storage and memory systems have been proposed for use in digital computing systems. The survey paper discusses only the various systems whose reaction time is faster than human reaction time and employs a historical approach to the subject. Criteria for evaluation are discussed as well as comparisons among the different systems as to general applicability, ease of construction and use, speed of operation, latency time, memory span, and economy.
