Abstract

The Universal Storage Device contains two functional areas: the attachment hardware 1 and the storage array card(s) 20. The array card 20 is made up of very dense, medium speed, low cost electronic storage devices. The attachment card 1 controls the data transfers between the system interface and the array card(s) 20. The attachment card 1 is architected to allow the array card 20 to be technology-independent.
