Types of Memory

Type of Memory DRAM (Dynamic RAM) SRAM (Static RAM) (L1, L2, L ) SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic RAM) DDR (Doub&e Data Rate) SDRAM DDR2 Sin+&e Ran'ed DDR Doub&e Ran'ed DDR /orm /actors /orm /actor D-MM (Dua& -n&ine Memory Modu&e) SoD-MM (Sma&& out&ine D-MM) MicroD-MM R-MM (Rambus -n&ine Memory Modu&e) Description 1(), 1),, or 2,.*pin. %ins on both sides are independent. SDRAM uses D-MM. (,*bits. "sed in noteboo' computers. 02*pin is 2*bits and 1,,*pin is (,*bits.
