Burst EDO a refined version of EDO memory that significantly improved access time over EDO.
CAS Latency a method of measuring access timing to memory,which is the number of clock cycles required to write or read a column of data off a memory module.
C-RIMM a placeholder RIMM module that provides continuity so that every RIMM slot is filled.
DDR2 runs at triple the speed of the system clock.
DDR3 runs at quadruple the speed of the system clock.
Direct Rambus DRAM RAM design by rambus
Double Data Rate SDRAM a type of memory technology used on DIMMs that runs at twice the speed of the system clock.
DDR runs at twice the speed of the system clock.
double-sided a DIMM feature whereby memory chips are installed on both sides of a DIMM.
dual channels a motherboard feature that improves memory performance by providing two 64-bit channels between memory and the chip-set .
dual ranked double -sided DIMMs that provides two 64-bit banks.the memory controller accesses first one bank than then the other.
dynamic RAM or DRAM/Dynamic random access memory
ECC chips is featured on the motherboard that checks the integrity of data stored on DIMMs or RIMMs and can correct single-bit errors in a byte.
EDO faster then conventional RAM because it eliminated the delay before it issued the the next memory address.
FPM a type of Dynamic RAM (DRAM) that allows faster access to data in the same row or page. Page-mode memory works by eliminating the need for a row address if data is located in the row previously accessed. It is sometimes called page mode memory.
