CPU
Central Processing Unit
DIMM
Dual Inline Memory Module - Long memory socket used for SDRAM DIMM wafers running at a fast refresh speed of typically 10ns.
DRAM
Dynamic Random Access Memory - Faster that DIPs and come in 30-pin and 72-pin SIMMs.
FCRAM
Fast Cycle RAM - Typically four times faster than standard DRAM with a normal cycle time of 20 nanoseconds (ns). This type of memory was developed by Fujitsu. Current maximum capacity of FCRAM is 64MB.
LAN
Local Area Network
SDRAM
Synchronous DRAM - Current maximu capacity is 512MB with a normal cycle time of 10ns using a 168-pin DIMM socket.
WS
Workstation or a Client on a LAN.
