    The term electronic disks has become associated with memory systems that are electronic devices–i.e., not involving mechanical movement, but possessing memory capacities and cost per bit which compete with rotating memories. Many technologies are being investigated that have the potential of being used for electronic disks. These include charge-coupled devices (CCD), magnetic bubbles, domain tip (DOT), and electron beam addressed memories (EBAM). View full abstract»

    In forecasting future types and uses of electronic disks one must consider processing unit architecture and software systems, as well as trends in computer memory technologies. This paper will concentrate on projections of memory technology, including computer architecture and software trends where relevant to these projections. Technologies which have the potential to result in standard commercial products are addressed rather than those which will result only in laboratory prototypes or militarized equipments designed for unique application environments. For example, a technology which may be uniquely suited for space applications may be much too expensive to compete as a commercial product. Bit densities, costs, access times, and other characteristics have been projected as representative of products which are in production, are available in quantity from several vendors, and are therefore competitively priced.

    The various technologies needed to build a successful electron-beam-addressed memory (EBAM) have been evolving for over a decade, and are now sufficiently established to build a viable, economical system. Recent work at SRI indicates that EBAM will be an important contender for low-cost, large memory systems with improved random-access capability, high reliability, and high data rates. This will be achieved in small volume and without the use of moving parts. The potential applications of such a mass memory system are widespread, ranging from direct drum and disk replacement to new systems with architectures that would take advantage of improved random access times and increased data rates.

  • The Impact of Electronic Disks on System Architecture

    The availability of mass storage devices with access times several orders of magnitude less than rotating-device memories will have varying impacts on computer system architectures. These effects will range from simple changes such as direct substitution for disks, where significant productivity increases can be easily achieved, through more radical changes where both hardware and software are changed in structure to exploit the potential of these new devices. Such changes include architectures for transaction-based computing, real-time computing with nonresident programs, and more flexible structures for time-shared computers. View full abstract»

    Obtaining quality documentation is one of the most difficult jobs in the analysis, design and development of a data processing system. Most DP systems require three types of documentation before a system becomes operational. These three types are the results of three evolutionary phases in the installation of a given system. Figure 1 depicts the evolutionary phases and defines the three types of documentation required. Actually, there are four phases and four types of documentation in the life of a system. The fourth phase is the System Maintenance Period of an ongoing system, and the fourth type of documentation is the User Reference Documentation. View full abstract»
