Definition von random-access memory im Englisch Englisch wörterbuch

random-access memory
the most common computer memory which can be used by programs to perform necessary tasks while the computer is on; an integrated circuit memory chip allows information to be stored or accessed in any order and all storage locations are equally accessible
dynamic random access memory
Dynamic RAM is typically the RAM used as the main memory in a computer system. DRAM requires fewer transistors per bit than SRAM, but each bit needs to be refreshed regularly or it will lose information. DRAM is typically slower but much less expensive than SRAM
non-volatile random access memory
a type of computer memory that can be written to repeatedly, but does not lose its value when the system is powered off, because it is battery backed
random access memory
The main memory of a computer available for program execution or data storage
random access memory
Computer memory that dynamically stores program and data values during operation and in which each byte of memory may be directly accessed
static random access memory
Static RAM is used for the cache memory and registers in computer systems. SRAM typically requires four or six transistors per bit, making it substantially more expensive than DRAM, which usually requires one transistor per bit. SRAM is able to operate at higher speeds than DRAM, and does not require refreshing
Random Access Memory
computer memory where data is temporarily stored for quick retrieval (once the computer is turned off all data in RAM is lost)
Random Access Memory
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory
Random Access Memory that can be adjusted and synchronized with the speed of the computer clock, SDRAM
