Description

The plated wire memories use a UNIVAC developed thin-film storage technique that results in demonstrably higher speeds and lower prices than most magnetic corememories. By operating in a nondestructive readout mode - the plated wire memory eliminates the need for regeneration of the data after every read operation. Plated wire memories can be manufactured and tested largely in continuous - automated processes.
