All Memory is not Equal
First, you will learn the difference between Read Only Memory (ROM) and Random Access Memory (RAM). These two types of system memory are the basis for all the other types of memory available.
Next, we will discuss how RAM is read from and written to by the processor and memory controller. You will then learn about how memory is packaged and used in a PC.
Following this, you will learn about special types of RAM that are used for error checking and correcting. Finally, we will discuss all of the various flavors of RAM that have been seen in the last few years, concluding with discussion about what technologies are on the horizon for system memory.
