The MX6000 Series of software configurable devices utilize multi-core In-Storage processing and open standards to deliver Flash memory devices optimized for performance and scalability.
A USB flash drive is a flash memory data storage device that is integrated with a Universal Serial Bus. USB flash drives are most often removable and rewritable, and are much smaller than other portable storage devices. They are usually used for similar purposes that floppy disks were. As such it is very easy to design a custom usb for daily use. Flash drives use the USB mass storage standard that is supported by most modern operating systems such as Windows and Mac OS X. The first USB flash...
Read only memory, or ROM, is a type of storage media that is used by computers and other electronic devices. The data stored in ROM cannot be modified, therefore it is largely used to distribute firmware. The most straightforward type of ROM is about as old as semiconductor technology. It is called mask ROM, and it was introduced along with the integrated circuit. Mask ROM is made up of a grid of word lines, called the address input, and bit lines, called the data output, that are...
Random access memory (RAM) is a form of computer data storage that takes the form of integrated circuits in order to allow stored data to be accessed in any order. Random refers to the idea that any piece of data can be restored in a constant time, regardless of its physical location and whether or not it is related to the prior piece of data. The word RAM is often associated with unstable types of memory where the information is lost after the power is switched off. Magnetic core memory...
In computing, memory applies to the state information of a computing system because it is kept active in some physical structure. The term "memory" is used for the fast information in physical systems, as a distinction from physical systems which are slow to access. The term also refers to temporary state devices. Informally, computer memory refers to the physical devices used to store data or programs for later use in an electronic computer. Computers use information in a binary code that is...
A hard disk drive is a non-volatile storage device for digital data. It has rotating rigid platters on a motor-driven spindle that is held in a metal case. Read/write heads float on a cushion of air about the platters and encode data magnetically. Hard disk manufacturers refer to disk capacity in standard powers of 1000. Hard disk drives were invented in 1956 by IBM and have been the dominant device for secondary storage of data on computers since due to their recording density, among other...
