Intelligent RAM (IRAM): Chips that Remember and Compute
Intelligent DRAMs (IRAMs) combine processors and DRAM to provide high
bandwidth for predictable access (e.g. matrix multiplication) and
low latency for unpredictable access (e.g. data base).
Applications include graphics, vector processing, portable and
embedded products. A vector processor in a merged logic-DRAM 0.25um
process would offer 5 GFLOPS (64b) and 40 GOPS (8b), and
24 MB of memory in a 256 Mb DRAM generation chip.
