RAM(Random Access Memory)

SRAM(Static Random Access Memory)

  • complicated circuit
  • high speed
  • expensive
  • cache

    Memory Cell


    Geeks for Geeks SAYAN KUMAR PAL

    stores data by current flow using flip-flop circuit

    if power is supplied and current is always flowing, stored data can be kept.

  • Read operation

    the word line is activated by the address input

    -> closes both the transistors T1 and T2

    -> the bit values at points A and B are transmit to their bit lines

    -> the sense/write circuit sent the output to the processor

  • Write Operation

    the address activates the word line to close both the switches

    -> the bit value is provided

    -> signals in bit lines are stored in the cell

DRAM(Dynamic Random Access Memory)

  • simple circuit
  • high memory density
  • large power consumption
  • main memory

    Memory Cell


    Geeks for Geeks SAYAN KUMAR PAL

  • required an operation to replenish the charge called "refresh"

    one transistor(T) and one capacitor(C) in each cell

    stores data by a capacitor, but charge gradually escapes as time passes

SDRAM(Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory)

DRAM operating in synchronization with clock signal

After late 1990~ prevailed as standard RAM

enabled pipelining

latency: Delay from read command to data output


"Eight Hyundai SDRAM ICs on a PC100 DIMM package." Wikipedia Synchronous dynamic random-access memory

typical clock speeds(bandwidth): 66Mhz, 100Mhz and 133MHz(15ns, 10ns, 7.5ns)

Generally modularized in the form of 168-pin DIMMs(Dual Inline Memory Module), it can read and write 64 bits (no ECC) or 72 bits (ECC) at one time.
