RAM (Random Access Memory)

a COMPUTER memory device from which data can be read and on to which data can be written. The contents of such memory can be added to, or erased, by an operator. RAM is incorporated in microchips which allow the operative access to any part of the memory without having to move sequentially through the contents of the memory from start to finish.

The parallelization of the solver in such computer systems allows to dramatically reduce the computation time and, at the same time, gives access to the distributed RAM memory of the whole cluster (in the order of hundreds of GBs).
The main limitation of current implementation can be seen in the relatively wasteful use of RAM memory for process stacks and queues which are allocated at build-time of the RTMON library and must be therefore defined in close relation with intended application, number of processes and their contents.
An LCD screen, 256K RAM memory and lightweight metal housing make the LaserLite Pro ideal for inventory, shipping and receiving, order entry and a variety of other data collection application.
New features include memory management for loading and analyzing image sets that are larger than available RAM memory, and advanced automatic tracking that measures the objects being tracked.
The PIC10F 8-bit Flash microcontroller family debuts with four members (PIC10F200, PIC10F202, PIC10F204 and PIC10F206) that offer 256 to 512 instructions (x12-bit program words) of Flash program memory and 16 bytes to 24 bytes of data RAM memory. These devices also feature a precision 4 MHz internal oscillator, 33 instructions, two stack levels, 25 milliAmp source/sink current IO, low power (100 nanoAmp) sleep current, a wide operating voltage range from 2- to 5.5-volts, one 8-bit timer, a watchdog timer, In Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP) technology, power-on reset, power-saving sleep mode and (in the PIC10F204 and PIC10F206 only) an analog comparator module.
