Memory Packaging

Like processors, memory is made from tiny semiconductor chips and must be packaged into something less fragile and tiny in order to be integrated with the rest of the system.

There are many different kinds of memory packages in the PC world today, and it can be difficult to know which type needs to be used with a given system design. This section discusses the types of packaging available and the issues involved in selecting and using memory packages and DRAM chips in a PC. If you are looking for specific installation instructions for memory modules, see this procedure.
