Technology / Computers / Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM): Dynamic Random Access Memory. This is a common type of random access memory that is used in personal computing. The 'dynamic' in its name is due to the fact that this memory needs to be refreshed as opposed to other SRAM that is 'static'. The DRAM is refreshed by the use of electrical current pulses that pass through all memory cells. DRAM needs to be periodically refreshed to retain the stored data.
