Amount of memory equal to 1,048,576 bits of information. (Abbreviated Mb.)
Amount of memory equal to 1,048,576 bytes of information. (Abbreviated MB.)
A measurement of clock cycles in millions of cycles per second.
The amount of memory in an IC and how it is accessed.
The logic chip used to handle the I/O (input/output) of data going to and from memory. See Chipset.
|Memory Cycle Time||
Minimum amount of time required for a memory to complete a cycle such as read, write, read/write, or read/modify/write.
Cache: static random access memory containing recently used information DRAM: dynamic random access memory. SDRAM: single data rate synchronous dynamic random access memory. DDR SDRAM: double data rate synchronous dynamic random access memory. Usually referred to as DDR. SLDRAM: synchronous link dynamic random access memory. RDRAM: Rambus dynamic random access memory. RAM: random access memory. ROM: read only memory (permanent memory that cannot be changed). SRAM: static random access memory.
1. A unit of measure equivalent to one-millionth of a meter; synonymous with micrometer. 2. Also the company name of one of the largest memory producers in the world and the parent company of Crucial Technology.
Smallest outline dual inline memory modules.
Millions of instructions per second. This measurement is generally used when describing the speed of computer systems.
Multi Layer Cell: Lower endurance limit than SLC.
A micron (or micrometer). A unit of length equal to one millionth of a meter.
The main printed circuit board in a computer that carries the system buses. It is equipped with sockets to which all processors, memory modules, plug-in cards, daughterboards, or peripheral devices are connected.
A microsecond: One millionth of a second.
