eDRAM stands for "embedded DRAM", a capacitor-based dynamic random access memory usually integrated on the same die or in the same package as the main ASIC or processor, as opposed to external DRAM modules and transistor-based SRAM typically used for caches. The terms storage (U.K.) or memory (U.S.) refer to the parts of a digital computer that retain physical state (data) for some interval of time, possibly even after electrical power to the computer is turned off. ... Volatile memory refers to computer memory that must be powered to maintain its data. ... Dynamic random access memory (DRAM) is a type of random access memory that stores each bit of data in a separate capacitor within an integrated circuit. ... Static random access memory (SRAM) is a type of semiconductor memory. ... 1T-SRAM is MoSyss implementation of embedded-DRAM on a conventional digital-logic (standard-cell) ASIC process. ...

Mercury memory of UNIVAC I (1951) Delay line memory was a form of computer memory used on some of the earliest digital computers, such as the EDSAC and UNIVAC I. The basic concept of the delay line originated with World War II radar research, specifically to reduce clutter from reflections... The Selectron was an early form of computer memory developed by RCA. Development started in 1946 with a planned production of 200 by the end of the year, but production problems meant that they were still not available by the middle of 1948. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with NVRAM. (Discuss) Non-volatile memory, nonvolatile memory, NVM or non-volatile storage, is computer memory that can retain the stored information even when not powered. ... Read-only memory (usually known by its acronym, ROM) is a class of storage media used in computers and other electronic devices. ... D23128C PROM on the board of ZX Spectrum A programmable read-only memory (PROM) or field programmable read-only memory (FPROM) is a form of digital memory where the setting of each byte is locked by a fuse or antifuse. ... Read-only memory (ROM) is used as a storage medium in computers. ... EPROM. The small quartz window admits UV light during erasure. ... An EEPROM (also called an E2PROM)[] or Electronically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory, is a non-volatile storage chip used in computers and other devices to store small amounts of volatile (configuration) data. ... A USB flash drive. ... Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM or FeRAM) is a type of non-volatile computer memory, similar to EEPROM but based on electric field orientation and with near-unlimited number (exceeding 1010 for 5V devices and even more for 3. ... Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (MRAM) is a non-volatile computer memory (NVRAM) technology, which has been in development since the 1990s. ... Phase-change memory (also known as PCM, PRAM, Ovonic Unified Memory and Chalcogenide RAM [C-RAM]) is a type of non-volatile computer memory. ... Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. ... RRAM or Resistive Random Access Memory is a new non-volatile memory type begin developed by Sharp, Samsung, Fujitsu, Spansion, Macronix, Winbond and other companies. ... Nano-RAM, is a proprietary computer memory technology from the company Nantero. ... hi i am cool xbox is all most as cool as me hi again ... A 16×16 cm area core memory plane of 128×128 bits, i. ... Bubble memory is a type of non-volatile computer memory that uses a thin film of a magnetic material to hold small magnetized areas, known as bubbles, which each store one bit of data. ... It has been suggested that Embedded System Design in an FPGA be merged into this article or section. ... Dynamic random access memory (DRAM) is a type of random access memory that stores each bit of data in a separate capacitor within an integrated circuit. ... Capacitors: SMD ceramic at top left; SMD tantalum at bottom left; through-hole tantalum at top right; through-hole electrolytic at bottom right. ... Dynamic random access memory (DRAM) is a type of random access memory that stores each bit of data in a separate capacitor within an integrated circuit. ... Integrated circuit of Atmel Diopsis 740 System on Chip showing memory blocks, logic and input/output pads around the periphery Microchips with a transparent window, showing the integrated circuit inside. ... ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ... Processor can mean: A central processing unit of a computer. ... Assorted discrete transistors A transistor is a semiconductor device, commonly used as an amplifier or an electrically controlled switch. ... Static random access memory (SRAM) is a type of semiconductor memory. ... Look up cache in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Embedding permits much wider buses and higher operation speeds, and due to much higher density of DRAM in comparison to SRAM, larger amounts of memory can potentially be used. However, the difference in manufacturing processes make on-die integration difficult, so several dies have to be packaged in one chip, raising costs. The latest developments overcome this limitation by using standard CMOS process to manufacture eDRAM, as in 1T-SRAM. In computer architecture, a bus is a subsystem that transfers data or power between computer components inside a computer or between computers and typically is controlled by device driver software. ... Static CMOS Inverter Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) (see-moss, IPA: ), is a major class of integrated circuits. ... 1T-SRAM is MoSyss implementation of embedded-DRAM on a conventional digital-logic (standard-cell) ASIC process. ...
