SRAM (static random access memory)

Contributor(s): Evan Jennings

Also see RAM types.

SRAM (static RAM) is random access memory (RAM) that retains data bits in its memory as long as power is being supplied. Unlike dynamic RAM (DRAM), which stores bits in cells consisting of a capacitor and a transistor, SRAM does not have to be periodically refreshed. Static RAM provides faster access to data and is more expensive than DRAM. SRAM is used for a computer's cache memory and as part of the random access memory digital-to-analog converter on a video card.

It 64-bit chip [SRAM] was introduced 1969 at Intel company, after your another successful chip called 3101 Schottky Bipolar memory that is not an innovate chip, albeit Intel has taken it as something new at that time. Also, [Intel] was introduced 1101, a 256-bits SRAM.
