Default How RAM works

Hey!

Does anybody know where I can find a diagram showing how RAM works?

I know how it works, but I just haven't the time to draw an accurate diagram. I've searched around, and all I can find are explanations alongside multiple diagrams.

I need the general information all in one diagram.

Thanks!
TMT.

Default Here is the answer...

Go to howstuffworks.com and search for RAM. It will tell you everything you need to know.

It's not that I don't know how it works. I'd just like it all in one informative diagram. I found some nice diagrams on HowStuffWorks, thanks. I suppose I could just combine a few of them together and add a bit of text.

Thanks.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_access_memory

Ive read How Stuff Works's article on ram. I find it to be really good, especially the diagrams showing how it all works. I think how stuff works is your best bet.

hey yeah.

Ram stores info by using little "capacitors" to store values.

Thats a start now read how stuff works and wikipedia to get the image and the rest of the text.
