    • Introduction
    • RAM,ROM,PROM,EPROM
    • Auxiliary Storage Devices-Magnetic Tape, Hard Disk, Floppy Disk
    • Optical Disks: CD-R Drive,CD-RW disks,DVD,Blue ray Discs.
  • 14.
    • Memory Devices
      • Memory: Is one or more sets of chips that store data/program instructions, either temporarily or permanently .
      • It is critical processing component in any computer
      • PCs use several different types
    2. RAM,ROM,PROM,EPROM
  • 15. RAM,ROM,PROM,EPROM
    • Memory Devices
      • Two most important are
        • RAM (Random Access Memory)
        • ROM (Read-only Memory)
      • They work in different ways and perform distinct functions
      • CPU Registers
      • Cache Memory
  • 16. RAM
    • RAM is packaged as a chip.
    • Basic storage unit is a cell (one bit per cell).
    • Multiple RAM chips form a memory.
    • R andom A ccess M emory
    • Volatile
    • Used for temporary storage
    • Typical ranges 256 MB - 4 GB
    • Random Access means direct access to any part of memory
  • 17. Nonvolatile Memories(ROM)
    • DRAM and SRAM are volatile memories
      • Lose information if powered off.
    • Nonvolatile memories retain value even if powered off.
      • Generic name is read-only memory ( ROM ).
      • Misleading because some ROMs can be read and modified.
  • 18. Nonvolatile Memories(ROM)
    • Types of ROMs
      • Programmable ROM ( PROM )
      • Eraseable programmable ROM ( EPROM )
      • Electrically eraseable PROM ( EEPROM )
      • Flash memory (used in portable digital devices)
    • Firmware (Program instruction used frequently)
      • Program stored in a ROM
        • Boot time code, BIOS (basic input/output system)
        • graphics cards, disk controllers.
  • 19. Memory
  • 20. 3. Storage Vs. Memory
    • Memory (e.g., RAM)
    • Keep the information for a shorter period of time (usually volatile)
    • Faster
    • More expensive
  • 21. 3. Storage Vs. Memory
    • Storage (e.g., Hard disk)
    • The information is retained longer (non-volatile)
    • Slower
    • Cheaper
  • 22. CONTENTS
    • Introduction
    • RAM,ROM,PROM,EPROM
    • Auxiliary Storage Devices-Magnetic Tape, Hard Disk, Floppy Disk
    • Optical Disks: CD-R Drive,CD-RW disks,DVD,Blue ray Discs.
  • 23. Categories Of Storage
    • Magnetic
      • Floppy disks
      • Zip disks
      • Hard drives
    • Optical
      • CD-ROM
      • DVD
    • Solid state storage devices
      • USB Key (a very common form of solid state storage)
  • 24. Magnetic Storage
    • Exploits duality of magnetism and electricity
      • Converts electrical signals into magnetic charges
      • Captures magnetic charge on a storage medium
      • Later regenerates electrical current from stored magnetic charge
    • Polarity of magnetic charge represents bit values zero and one
  • 25.
    • Magnetic Drives
  • 26. Magnetic Disk
    • Flat, circular platter with metallic coating that is rotated beneath read/write heads
    • Random access device; read/write head can be moved to any location on the platter
    • Hard disks and floppy disks
    • Cost performance leader for general-purpose on-line secondary storage
  • 27.
    • Magnetic Drives: Storage Capacities
    • Floppy disks
      • ~ 1 MB
    • Hard drives
      • ~80 – 500 GB (TB is possible but very rare)
  • 28. Floppy Disks A floppy disk is a portable, inexpensive storage medium that consists of a thin, circular, flexible plastic disk with a magnetic coating enclosed in a square-shaped plastic shell.
  • 29. Structure Of Floppy Disks
    • Initially Floppy disks were 8-inches wide, they then shrank to 5.25 inches, and today the most widely used folly disks are 3.5 inches wide and can typically store 1.44 megabytes of data.
    • A folly disk is a magnetic disk, which means that it used magnetic patterns to store data.
    • Data in floppy disks can be read from and written to.
    • Formatting is the process of preparing a disk for reading and writing.
    • A track is a narrow recording band that forms a full circle on the surface of the disk.
  • 30. Hard Disks
    • Another form of auxiliary storage is a hard disk. A hard disk consists of one or more rigid metal plates coated with a metal oxide material that allows data to be magnetically recorded on the surface of the platters.
    • The hard disk platters spin at a high rate of speed, typically 5400 to 7200 revolutions per minute (RPM).
    • Storage capacities of hard disks for personal computers range from 10 GB to 120 GB (one billion bytes are called a gigabyte).
  • 31. sectors each track is divided into pie-shaped wedges cluster two or more sectors combined tracks data is recorded in concentric circular bands
  • 32. Optical Mass Storage Devices
    • Store bit values as variations in light reflection
    • Higher areal density & longer data life than magnetic storage
    • Standardized and relatively inexpensive
    • Uses: read-only storage with low performance requirements, applications with high capacity requirements & where portability in a standardized format is needed
  • 33.
    • Optical Drives
    • CD's (Compact Disk)
    • ~ 700 MB storage
      • CD-ROM (read only)
      • CD-R: ( r ecord) to a CD
      • CD-RW: can write and erase CD to reuse it ( r e- w ritable)
      • DVD(Digital Video Disk)
  • 34. Compact Discs (CD)
    • A compact disk (CD), also called an optical disc, is a flat round, portable storage medium that is usually 4.75 inch in diameter.
    • A CD-ROM (read only memory), is a compact disc that used the same laser technology as audio CDs for recording music. In addition it can contain other types of data such as text, graphics, and video.
    • The capacity of a CD-ROM is 650 MB of data.
  • 35.
    • DVD-ROM
      • Over 4 GB storage (varies with format)
      • DVD- ROM (read only)
      • Many recordable formats (e.g., DVD-R, DVD-RW; ..)
      • Are more highly compact than a CD.
      • Special laser is needed to read them
    DVD (Digital Video Disk)
  • 36. Blu-ray Technology
    • Name
    • Derived from the blue-violet laser used to read and write data.
      • Developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association with more than 180 members.
        • Dell
        • Sony
        • LG
  • 37. Blu-ray Technology Cont .
    • Data capacity
      • Because Blu-ray uses a blue laser(405 nanometers) instead of a red laser(650 nanometers) this allows the data tracks on the disc to be very compact.
      • This allows for more than twice as small pits as on a DVD.
  • 38. Blu-ray Technology Cont.
    • BD-ROM (read-only) - for pre-recorded content
    • BD-R (recordable) - for PC data storage
    • BD-RW (rewritable) - for PC data storage
    • BD-RE (rewritable) - for HDTV recording
    Formats
