What are the different types of memory?

The types of memory in a computer system are:

- Cache Memory - This is a small amounts of memory used to speed up system performance.
- Main memory - This is the RAM (random access memory)
- Secondary memory - This is a magnetic storage that keeps applications and data available to be used, and may also serves as virtual memory depending upon the operating system

What are the different types of memory?

The memory types are:

SIMM - Single-Line Memory Modules: Used to store single row of chips which are soldered onto Printed Circuit Board.

DIMM – Dual-Line Memory Modules: Used to store two rows of chips which are soldered onto printed circuit board and enables to contain two times memory than SIMM

DRAM – Dynamic Random Access Memory: It holds data for short time period and will be refreshed periodically.

SDRAM - Static RAM – Holds data and refreshing does not required. It is faster than DRAM.

Flash Memory: A non volatile, rewritable and solid state memory which performs the functions of both RAM and hard disk combined. Data is retained in the memory, in case of power loss. It is ideal for printers, cellular phones, digital cameras, pagers.

Shadow RAM: Allows the moving of selected parts of BIOS code that is available in ROM to the faster RAM.
Operating System virtual memory - Explain the meaning of virtual memory.
Operating System virtual memory - Virtual memory is an approach to make use of the secondary storage devices as an extension of the primary storage of the computer......
What is RTOS?
What is RTOS? - A certain capability within a specified time constraint is guaranteed by an operating system called ‘real time operating system’.
Difference between hard real-time and soft real-time
Hard real-time and soft real-time - Critical task completion on time is guaranteed by a hard real time system.
