More compact than previous memories due to the elimination of bulky drive coils, Bell Labs' improved bubble memory will be used to store digitally recorded messages. It will also see service in high- capacity telephone switching systems and in a variety of microprocessor-based terminal equipment. Consumer products such as pocket calculators and programmable microwave ovens may also benefit from the new development.
