A single DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) computer chip with a storage capacity of 16 Megabytes, developed by the Matsushita corporation of Japan. The device is held between two fingers to show scale. DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) devices are used as memory chips in microcomputers. Data can be read from and written to DRAM chips, but the contents are lost when the power supply is removed. Dynamic RAM devices are distinguished from their static relatives by the need for their contents to be constantly refreshed at short, regular intervals.
