39 Summary A simple 16-byte memory circuit can be constructed from 16 octal D flip-flops and a decoder. This circuit would have 16 memory locations (addresses) selectable by the decoder, with 1 byte (8 bits) of data at each location. 40

40 Summary Static RAM (random-access memory) ICs are also called read/write memory. They are used for the temporary storage of data and program instructions in microprocessor-based systems. 41

41 Summary A typical RAM IC is the 2114A. It is organized as 1k  4, which means that it has 1k locations, with 4 bits of data at each location. (1k is actually represents 210 = 1024.) An example of a higher-density RAM IC is the 6206, which is organized as 32k  8. 42

42 Summary Dynamic RAMs are less expensive per bit and have a much higher density than static RAMs. Their basic storage element is an internal capacitor at each memory cell. External circuitry is required to refresh the charge on all capacitors every 2 ms or less. 43

43 Summary Dynamic RAMs generally multiplex their address bus. This mean that the high-order address bits share the same pins as the low-order address bits. They are demultiplexed by the RAS and CAS (Row Address Strobe and Column Address Strobe) control signals. 44

44 Summary Read-only memory (ROM) is used to store data on a permanent basis. It is nonvolatile, which means that it does not lose its memory contents when power is removed. 45

45 Summary Three common ROMs are (1) the mask ROM, which is programmed once by a masking process by the manufacturer; (2) the fusible-link programmable ROM (PROM), which is programmed once by the user; and (3) the erasable-programmable ROM (EPROM), which is programmable and UV-erasable by the user. 46

46 Summary Memory expansion in microprocessor systems is accomplished by using octal or hexadecimal decoders as address decoders to select the appropriate memory IC. The Electrically-Erasable PROM (EEPROM) and Flash memory use a floating-gate MOSFET for their primary storage element. A charge on the floating gate represents the stored data. 47

47 Summary Magnetic storage like the floppy or hard disk use magnetized particles to represent the stored 1 or 0. Individual data bits are read and written using an electro-magnetic read/write head. Optical memory like the CD or DVD use a laser beam to reflect light off of a rigid platter. The CD or DVD platter will either have a non-reflective pit to represent a 1 or a non-pit (land) to represent a 0. 48
