Abstract : Magnetic bubble memory is a new digital storage technology that offers many significant advantages over currently existing secondary storage media. Bubble memories, with high densities and relatively fast access times, are non-volatile semiconductor devices that provide a high degree of reliability in harsh environments. This technology has the potential for a vital and unique role in both the civilian and military computing environments due to the combination of characteristics exhibited by magnetic domain devices. This thesis presents an implementation of a magnetic bubble device utilizing a conventional operating system, Digital Research's CP/M-86, and a standard commercial 16-bit microcomputer, the Intel iSBC 86/2A. A fully operational system capable of testing, evaluating and utilizing a magnetic bubble device in a standard user environment is presented. (Author)
