About this Artwork
This artwork displays many of the various types of solid-state memory that succeeded the core memory used in the 60’s and 70’s. The variety of memories represented here is due to several factors. First, price/performance factors drove many of the developments, speed vs. cost, capacity vs. cost, etc. Capabilities such as the non-volatility, the ability to retain bit patterns when power is turned off, drove some. Also, just the marketing forces to differentiate products drove some of it as well.
