    I welcome the opportunity to address the members of the Computer Society in COMPUTER — particularly since I was not given the opportunity to do this in SPECTRUM. When I learned that the Regional Directors had been asked to make a statement on the referendum in the September issue of SPECTRUM I felt that the cards were being stacked somewhat by the anti-referendum forces. Therefore, I reques... View full abstract»

    Two of the major factors affecting the efficiency of a computing system are the Data Transfer Rate between processor(s) and main memory and the Availability of Data in main memory as needed by the processor(s). The objective of this paper is to present some of the techniques employed in order to enhance the effectiveness of these factors. Both factors are dependent upon the cycle time of the main ...

    The need for mass storage in computer systems is becoming increasingly important with the growing trend toward interactive terminal-oriented systems storing all data on-line under systems control. The capacity required of mass-storage devices (disk, tape, and card), therefore, far exceeds the range for which electronic memory is economical. View full abstract»

    The dominant factors involved in a comparison of memory component technologies depend somewhat on the storage capacity required in a single independently accessable module. Here we make a distinction between small memories and large memories, with the dividing line taken at 104 bits, and between large memories and file or archive memories with a division at about 108 bits.
