CHAPTER 10

DRAM Memory System Organization

Previous chapters examine the basic building blocks of DRAM devices and signaling issues that constrain the transmission and subsequent storage of data into the DRAM devices. In this chapter, basic terminologies and building blocks of DRAM memory systems are described. Using the building blocks described in the previous chapters, the text in this chapter examines the construction, organization, and operation of multiple DRAM devices in a larger memory system. This chapter covers the terminologies and topology, as well as the organization of various types of memory modules.
