Burst EDO (BEDO) A variant on EDO DRAM in which read or write cycles are batched in bursts of four.
CAS Latency (CL) Column Address Strobe latency is delay time between moment a memory controller tells the memory module to access a particular memory column on a RAM module, and the moment the data from the given array location is available on the module's output pins.
C-RIMM (Continuity RIMM) C-RIMM is an inexpensive pass through module that allows for a continuous signal for computers with RIMM memory.
DDR2 DDR2 SDRAM is a double data rate synchronous dynamic random-access memory interface.
DDR3 In computing, DDR3 SDRAM, an abbreviation for double data rate type three synchronous dynamic random access memory, is a modern kind of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) with a high bandwidth interface, and has been in use since 2007.
Direct Rambus DRAM DRAM A memory technology by Rambus and Intel that uses a narrow network-type system bus. Memory is stored on a RIMM module. Also called RDRAM or Direct RDRAM.
Double Data Rate SDRAM A type of memory technology used on DIMMs that runs at twice the speed of the system clock.
DDR SDRAM An abbreviation for Double Data Rate SDRAM
double-sided A DIMM with memory chips installed on both sides of the module.
dual channels A motherboard feature that improves memory performance by providing two 64-bit channels between memory and the chipset. DDR and DDR2 memory can use dual channels.
dual ranked Double-sided DIMMs that provide two 64-bit banks.
dynamic RAM (DRAM) The most common type of system memory, it requires refreshing every few milliseconds.
ECC (error-correcting code) A chipset feature on a motherboard that checks the integrity of data stored on DIMMs or RIMMs and can correct single-bit errors in a byte. More advanced ECC schemas can detect, but not correct, double-bit errors in a byte.
EDO (extended data out) A edo type of outdated RAM that was faster than conventional RAM because it eliminated the delay before it issued the next memory address.
FPM (fast page memory) FPM Can be used with 30-pin or 72-pin SIMMs or some really old 168-pin DIMMs
