2 Storage Purpose: Without storage a computer can only function as a digital signal processing device (e.g. calculator, media player).

3 History of Storage Devices 1956- Hard Disk 1971- 8 Floppy Disk 1980- CD (compact disk) 1994- Compact Flash, Zip Drive 1995- DVD 1998- Memory stick 2001- USB key 2004- HD-DVD, Holographic

5 Types of Storage Devices Hard Disk- a non-volatile storage device which stores digitally encoded data on rapidly rotating platters with magnetic surfaces. Optimal Disks- a storage device that uses tiny pits etched on the surface of a circular disc to store information, and reads this information by illuminating the surface with a laser diode and observing the reflection. Optical disc storage is non-volatile and sequential access. (Ex. CD, DVD)

6 Types of Storage Devices (cont) USB flash drive- a NAND-type flash memory storage device integrated with a USB (universal serial bus) interface. Flash memory stores information in an array of floating gate transistors, called "cells". Each cell stores one bit of information. Holographic- Holographic memory is a technique that can store information at high density inside crystals or photopolymers. The advantage of this type of data storage is that the volume of the recording media is used instead of just the surface.

7 CPU and Memory Main Memory Magnetic Disk Optical Disk Parameters that Affect Computer Performance

8 CPU and Memory Performance Factors: CPU Speed, Cache memory, Data bus speed, Data bus width. Beneficial for: Fast processing of data once the data reside in the main memory. Example Applications: Repetitive calculation of formulas and manipulation of large picture images.

9 Main Memory Performance Factors: Size and Speed Beneficial for: Holding multiple programs at one time, processing very large amounts of data. Example Applications: Processing large files in several programs and websites and gaming.

10 Magnetic Disk Performance Factors: Size, channel type and speed, rotational speed, seek time. Beneficial for: Storing many large programs and files, swapping files in and out of memory. Example Applications: store detailed maps and large data downloads from organizational servers.

11 Optical disk-CD Performance Factors: Up to 700 MB Beneficial for: Reading CDs, backup files. Example Applications: Install new programs, play and record music, backup data.

12 Optical disk-DVD Performance Factors: Up to 4.7 GB Beneficial for: Process both DVDs and CDs, backup files. Application Examples: Install new programs, play and record music and video, backup data.
