Memory Circuits and IP

  • Harry Veendrick


Memories are circuits designed for the storage of digital values. In a computer system, memories are used in a large variety of storage applications, depending on memory capacity, cost and speed. Figure 6.1 shows the use of memory storage at different hierarchy levels in a computer system.
