Dynamic random access memory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The first dynamic RAM (DRAM) was proposed in 1970 with a capacity of 1 Kb. Since then, DRAMs have been the major driving force behind VLSI technology development. The density and performance of DRAMs have increased at a very fast pace. In fact, the densities of DRAMs have quadrupled about every three years.
