About the Author

Bruce Jacob is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received his Ars Baccalaureate, cum laude, in Mathematics from Harvard University in 1988, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1995 and 1997, respectively. In addition to his academic credentials, he has extensive experience in industry: he designed real-time embedded applications and real-time embedded architectures in the area of telecommunications for two successful Boston-area startup companies, Boston Technology (now part of Comverse Technology) and Priority Call Management (now part of uReach Technologies). At Priority Call Management he was employee number 2, the system architect, and the chief engineer; he built the first working prototype of the company’s product, and he built and installed the first actual product as well.

Spencer Ng is a senior technical staff member with Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. Prior to that, he was a research staff member with IBM Almaden Research Center. Before joining IBM, he was a member of technical staff with Bell Labs in Naperville, Illinois. He has been a researcher in the field of storage for over twenty years, and is the holder of about twenty issued U.S. patents. For the past fifteen years, he is heavily involved in studying and developing various techniques for improving disk drive performance.

David Wang received his PhD from the University of Maryland in 2005. David's primary research interest is into power efficient, high performance memory systems that use commodity DRAM devices. As part of his research, David has collaborated with memory system architects and design engineers, and presented his work to JEDEC in support of proposals for future generation DRAM device specifications. David is presently working as an architect for MetaRAM, a memory systems startup in the Silicon Valley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly detailed 19 July 2013
By P. Salanova - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great detail in every section but so well written that it is easy to follow. And quite engaging (if you're into this kind of stuff I guess)

The only negative is that SSDs aren't covered but since it was published in 2007, what can you do? If they put out an update that includes SSDs, it would be worth buying again...

5.0 out of 5 stars You should have it in your library 22 Aug. 2014
By Alageel Almuthanna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Memory Systems by Bruce Jacob is a perfect reference to have in your library that regards the topic of memory systems and it spans from Caches to Hard-Disk and RAID technology. For each topic, the authors talks from electronics to logic gate level with highly-cited paper-based references.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 16 Feb. 2011
By Leandro Musso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book looking for the details of the inner workings of hard disk drive technology, and to my surprise, the book has overcome all my expectatives. Clear explanations, precise language, and a technical detail that it is hard to find on similar books. It is clear to me that the authors know "a little" about what they are writing about ... 100% recommendable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall Memory Coverage 30 Dec. 2007
By Steven Millard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent source that covers system, component and architectures of memory systems and how the total computer memory system is put together into a working system. The coverage of the material is up to date and addresses the critical issues that are facing the present and next generation memory systems being implemented and designed today. The book was well written and is a great source for engineering students and even to a degree non-engineering people. For me, a seasoned engineer, that is relatively new to memory systems, is has been a great source in helping me understand the overall system and how it all works. It also addresses some of the major engineering issues facing todays design that I am presently working on and covers the details of the components to give a good overall understanding of how it all fits together. An excellent overall source to have on hand for any engineer working on memory systems
