synchronous dynamic random access memory

[¦siŋ·krə·nəs dī‚nam·ik ‚ran·dəm ′ak‚ses ‚mem·rē]
(computer science)
High-speed memory that is controlled by the system clock and can run at bus speeds up to 100 megahertz. Abbreviated SDRAM.

Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory

(storage)
(SDRAM, Synchronous DRAM) A form of DRAM which adds a separate clock signal to the control signals. SDRAM chips can contain more complex state machines, allowing them to support "burst" access modes that clock out a series of successive bits (similar to the nibble mode DRAM).
