History of RAM

Memory (RAM) – a device that is a critical component in the computer and that it determines the speed of the last, and also the maximum amount of his tasks simultaneously.

The first memory was developed in 1970 by American scientist Robert Dennard, who worked at IBM. This kind of memory and gave the foundation that exists at the moment as a memory. It was a dynamic memory DRAM. But as with the introduction of the DRAM is not quite time to process the data so as one would like, then 10 years later appeared the form of dynamic memory – FPM.

Resistive memory – the technology of the future

In May 2012, British scientists have created (by the way, quite by accident, during the creation of a silicon-based light-emitting diodes), the world’s first prototype chip resistive memory (ReRAM), building on silica. As stated by the scientists, this prototype could well be the basis for further development of superfast next generation memory chip created as fully capable to operate in ambient conditions. Now a little more detail.

CMOS-memory and BIOS

CMOS-memory – a kind of computer memory that contains the most important information for it, for example, the current date and time, the user’s password (if, of course, is set), and similar data. CMOS-memory is a semi-permanent, because data storage is carried out even when the computer is turned off. This is possible thanks to a special computer motherboard battery.

CMOS and BIOS

CMOS and BIOS

Writing and reading information CMOS-memory is performed by teams BIOS. BIOS – this is also the memory, but the other – constant. All information is stored in it during manufacture, and can be stored there an infinite amount of time, regardless of whether the computer is on or off.
