A 12 ns 8 MB DRAM secondary cache for a 64 b microprocessor

The most important advantage of on-chip DRAMs is high bandwidth between a DRAM and a processor. Many circuit technologies are used to enlarge the bandwidth. For example, sense amplifier data are extracted by a number of data-lines parallel to the bit-lines in some DRAMs. Even if these circuits are used, random accesses substantially degrade the bandwidth… CONTINUE READING
