Question IBM term defined = Memory "Channel"??



When IBM uses phrases like
"To optimize the performance of the RDRAM technology, each channel is limited to 32 devices."
from

or "To optimize the performance of the Rambus technology, there is a limitation of 32 devices on a particular channel."
from

What does channel mean?

does it refer to total memory limit for the system? or
the max limit of each memory RIMM or RDRam? or
is a channel, a pair of RIMM sockets? (as RIMM memory chip upgrades are added in pairs).

Thanks

IBM does have support phone numbers/email addresses. I am sure that they would be glad to help you.
