SRAM Full Form

SRAM stands for Static Random Access Memory. It is a form of a semiconductor. It is widely used in microprocessors, general computing applications and electronic devices. The SRAM is volatile in nature that means the data stored in it gets all wiped out once the power supply is cut. SRAM comprised of flip flops. It consist of 4-6 transistors, once the flip flop stores the bit it keep it stored until the opposite bit is stored in it.

History

Engineer John Schmidt invented the SRAM in 1964 at Fairchild Semiconductors. The first SRAM is 64-bit and uses p-channel MOS.
Intel released its first 256-bit Intel 1101 SRAM chip in 1969, five years after its invention. But it uses Schottky TTL (Transistor-Transistor-Logic) architecture for its build.
Early SRAMs were manufactured using ceramic plastic. But nowadays, SRAMs are integrated directly to the CPU for faster and better processing.
