ANNOUNCING (Part 1):
TRANSCAP TO BE BROUGHT INTO FULL
PRODUCTION BY 2002
Basing it's prediction on the measured progress of its research
staff working on the TCAP wafer scale fabrication effort, ACC
indicated that it's newly formed business "ACC Labs" intends to
BRING THE TCAP STORAGE DEVICE, a solid state 90GB Disk Drive, to
market within "four to five years" or less, indicating that a
RAID ARRAY of 12 such disk "chips" may be the first product it
offers for sale in the TCAP line.
Such a product would have over a 1
Terabyte capacity, indicated a spokesperson, and would occupy
only a 2 inch square by 3.5 - 4.25 inch area.
Anthony Chen, head of the effort to build ultra-density nano-transcapacitors, indicated:
"Right at this point, we are in
the process of engineering-out growth and deposition
irregularities in the process we are using to yield 45 Cell
/ 2 GB per Cell wafer-fabs. It will take us the original two
years to complete this effort, providing us with TWO, not
The first, the Solid State 90GB
Disk Drive, which shall then take an additional 12 to 18
months to bring to market, beating the IBM Product
Development cycle handbooks by, maybe, 12 months, will be
During that time, we hope to
Patent three variations, the second being a lower capacity,
higher degree of 'intercommunication' unit - a 'Neural
Network Array' based on 24 Billion 'Complex Transcapacitor
Nodes' adopting a software configurable topology.
This NN-array will require
advanced Neural Net software to manage it, and will take
quite a bit longer to debug, requiring a small supercomputer
to serve as its "process controller". We have not yet
announced WHAT the Third Variation is, yet, so I can't
comment on that one."
A Spokesperson for ACC indicated it
had "no comment" on what effect the TCAP products might have on
the value of conventional magnetic disk drive products or the
companies which manufacture them. Suggestions that ACC was
pre-announcing the product in order to drive Disk Drive company
stock down, so it could corner the market, was responded to
Chen indicated in response to the question "How does it work?",
"Well, you have to understand,
each tiny TCAP device acts like a power source and a power
sink connected by an unconventional balancing material,
operating like the 'scales of justice'. Once energized, it
hardly loses any power, maintaining a stable operation that
yields no heat and which "interlocks" in one state.
External currents simply effect
the balance of 'source electrons' to 'sink electrons',
requiring only minute changes to effect a very large data
read or write. We have found that it uses a 'quantum
inversion field' to maintain charges within its domain, and
simply redistributes them from Source to Sink and back,
causing a change only to the Balance, like a scale moving in
one direction or the other up or down.
We called this the 'Shulman'
effect, because it was his theory about it that proved
correct, and so the name stuck, despite Jack's insistence
that we not associate him with the device. He's much very
more shy than the rest of us are!"
ANNOUNCING (Part 2):
LIQUID MEMORY DEVICE "DISCOVERED"
BY ACC LABS
At the groundbreaking effort announcing the formation of ACC
Labs, in Cranford, American's president, Jack Shulman,
indicated to Press, that the "number of innovations in the
Notebook appear endless from where we view things."
ACC announced it was working on a very unusual development, a
high speed liquid based memory device with "submolecular
magnetic domain" addressability, based on,
"ceramic metallites porous
enough to absorb a special liquid suspension that quite
literally enable the cermet to, in a very orderly fashion,
store information in a manner not unlike old-style magnetic
core memory, which can be read or retrieved via intersecting
electromagnetic signals at specific frequencies".
ACC indicated that the preliminary
study of drawings that were leading it down the path of building
a second prototypical "alleged alien technology" device,
appeared to describe several forms of addressable memory with a
capacity of about 10000 to 100000 times the density of today's
"S-DRAM DIMM MEMORY", with longer refresh rates, lower power
consumption, and a much higher speed - on an order of 3-800
Gigaherz cycle times and faster (speeds capable of being used to
deliver data to ultra fast Teraherz optical net switching,
without time division multiplexing, sub-modulation or
"Between these two devices, we
have a remarkable story. To give you an idea of what ACC has
discovered, consider the capacity and speed of the T-CAP and
the LQ-RAM. Imagine: placing the sum of the entire WORLD
WIDE INTERNET and storing it on a single Desk Sized storage
device, using TCAPS, that is -- every single website in the
world today, held in a small box a few cubic feet in size --
and then using our unannounced TCAP Product with LQ-RAM and
transmitting the entire WORLD WIDE INTERNET across the
country by fiber optics, to another such device a few cubic
feet in size -- in only a few moments!!" commented Chen,
"It's ironic how we, today, think such a feat impossible,
yet every day, I come to work, and review the
ACC/Roswell-1947 Shopkeeper's drawings, which are 50 YEARS
OLD, and they depict things UNTHINKABLE EVEN IN 1998 !!"
A spokesperson indicated:
"This is consistent with our
perception that this even higher density faster memory was
probably used in modest amounts as the 'operative storage'
in a computer not unlike our own, but one where larger,
lower density storage, like the TCAP, were used for offline
It's strange to consider the
TCAP, capable of storing 1 Terabyte in the space of a
flashlight battery, as an analogy to a Tape Drive, but at
the speeds we are talking about, the TCAP is much slower,
but perhaps more 'permanent' than Liquid Memory.
Our next 'Engineering Marvels'
reverse engineering exercise, analyzing what appears to be
the equivalent of a power source and logical control 'phase
loop lock' circuit on a scale that appears unparalleled in
our experience, may help us look further out into the
original designers' theories, accelerating some of what we
American's VP of Research indicated:
"If this device came from SPACE,
then it must have been part of a very advanced computer
requiring an enormous active memory, a huge permanent
storage, and a vast array of micro-programmable processors.
It would have made today's Massively Parallel Computers seem
quite simplistic by comparison.
We are getting some really keen
insight into how to improve the Desktop Workstation and the
Network Server, by studying these devices: they are
providing clues that should enable us to greatly improve the
overall through put of our existing system products.
There are things about these
devices, the TCAP and the LQ-RAM, that explore areas of
polyphasic buffering, pipelining and multi-threading
information flows that humanity hasn't considered yet. This
could be quite a BOON to our mainstream product development
American indicated that it would be
regularly releasing photos, documents and scientific studies
that would assist the Public in understanding the nature of what
it has been engaging in in-depth research into, through the
auspices of the newly organized ACC Labs.
