MDRAM

(Multibank DRAM) An earlier type of dynamic RAM chip from MoSys, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA (www.mosys.com) that was available in 256KB increments. It enabled embedded applications with fixed memory requirements to have exactly the amount of RAM they need. MDRAM used an internal bus connected to independent 32KB banks of DRAM, which provides a bandwidth of 666 MBytes/sec.
