Title: Data storing apparatus including integrated magnetic memory cells and semiconductor devices

Abstract: A data storing apparatus in which a magnetic storing means includes magnetic memory cells for memorizing data of a first value or a second value. Input data is written to the memory cells separately or simultaneously by electromagnetic induction. One or more magnetic memory cells are selected, with respect to which the data is to be read or written. Each magnetic memory cell has a ferromagnetic body holding the data of the first value or the second value in accordance with direction of magnetization or magnetizing force thereof. The current control means performs the reading or writing of the data with respect to the selected magnetic cells. The current control means comprises semiconductor devices and controls current therethrough in both directions.
