ASAP Memory Blog | Latest Updated on Memory Upgrades

Random Access Memory (RAM) is a form of memory that is used by computers in order to store information. Similar to the short-term or working memory of a person, RAM is the kind of memory which computers rely on only while they are connected to power. Once the device is disconnected, all of the information stored in a computer’s RAM is cleared away. Within RAM, there are two commonly used types called static and dynamic. Both are able to temporarily store memory, however the way in which they retain data bits differs in several major ways, all of which will be discussed in this blog.

A memory device is defined as a piece of hardware that stores data. As our world is increasingly becoming digitized, more and more of our technological systems rely on memory devices to store pertinent information. In fact, computers, mobile phones, tablets, and many other everyday gadgets are equipped with memory devices. In this blog we will outline three main types of memory devices we encounter, those of which are SRAM, DRAM, and VRAM.

A FIFO is a "first in first out" memory buffer between two systems with simultaneous read and write access. It means that the data written into the buffer first comes out of it first. If you’ve ever waited in a line, then you understand how a FIFO functions. FIFOs can be implemented with software or hardware. The choice between a software or hardware solution depends on the application's hard drives and the features desired. FIFO can be either synchronous or asynchronous. The difference between them is that the operation of synchronous FIFO is dependent on the clock, whereas the read/write operation of asynchronous FIFO are alternate to each other.

Power management integrated circuits (power management ICs or PMICs) are integrated circuits that perform different functions related to power management. They may have one or more functions including DC to DC conversion, battery charging, power-source selection, voltage scaling, power sequencing, and miscellaneous functions. PMICs control the flow and direction of electrical power. Electrical devices contain internal voltages and sources of external power. PMICs usually incorporate multiple functions into one IC to increase efficiency, decrease size, and create better heat dissipation.

Whether you’re using a USB flash drive or secure digital cards, you’re using flash memory. Flash memory, or NAND flash, has become a major part of every industry as we incorporate technology into anything and everything. One of the best attributes of NAND is that it does not require being powered on to actively store the memory; it continues to hold memory until manual deletion. This is an important feature because it makes NAND more cost-efficient than DRAM memory, which must be powered on to hold data.

If you’ve ever looked into computer memory, you might’ve come across some weird acronyms. RAM, DRAM, SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, DDR3, and so on. You know they’re supposed to be the memory, but you don’t know the difference and now you’re just confused. Here’s a short bit on what you need to know about computer memory.

In 2006, several DRAM manufacturers announced that they were supplying the industry’s first DDR3 devices and modules to leading PC developers by early 2007 and that DDR3s would be available by the end of 2007 and early 2008. While a DDR3 memory might seem like much to us today in 2018 because of the release of the DDR4 in 2014, in 2006, the DDR3 SDRAMs were exciting.

Flash memory is used as a storage device just like a hard drive or Ram. What sets it apart is its size and portability. The ease transferring data from one computer to another using a flash drive is a breeze due to its ease of use. The flash drive can be plugged into a USB port in a laptop or computer, when this is accomplished, you can easily move files from your computer to the flash drive. This makes it possible to transport information through a storage device that’s small, convenient, and compatible with all computers and laptops.

Flash memory is used broadly every day in all types of products memory products including mobile phones, cameras, computers and more! Flash is created to last for an extended amount of time especially for its diverse application methods there is a never-ending demand for it. However, there has been an increase in unauthorized resellers who are disposing of used chips in the flash and reselling the flash as a new product.  This can negatively impact the buyer because of the unethical approach to the dispensing method as well as the quality that is being compensated. To avoid situations of buying a falsely advertised flash, the engineers at the University of Alabama began to research a way to identify the possible usage of the flash memory.

During the previous couple years, the computing industry experienced some of the most dangerous version of hacking into Intel processors. Many people and businesses were affected due to this unwanted intrusion into their personal devices. Top computing systems that are found in as the AMD, ARM and Intel units are now being affected. Mobile devices such as tablets, laptops, smart phones, and other important devices can be drained of their private information.
