Issue No. 08 - August (1977 vol. 10)
Last November we reported that magnetic bubble memory devices would be available this year, permitting designers to find out about them first hand.<sup>1</sup>The most important development since then for the computer industry was Texas Instruments' March announcement of the first commercially available bubble device?a 92K chip?for about $200 each in sample quantities. Of importance as an indication of what the next two years could bring to the market was Rockwell International's announcement on June 7 at the International Magnetics Conference in Los Angeles of the successful development of a one-million-bit bubble device in its Electronic Research Division.<sup>2</sup>
