Even these applications do not require the whole program to be written in the assembly language. In such instances, a small part of the program is written in the assembly language and the rest is written in some high-level language. Such programs are called hybrid or mixed-mode programs. In Chapter 17, we discuss how we can write such hybrid programs. Learning the assembly language has both practical and educational purposes. Even if you don’t intend to program in an assembly language, studying it gives you a good understanding of computer systems.

For example, flash memory cycle time is about 80 ns whereas the corresponding value for RAMs is about 10 ns. Nevertheless, since flash memories are nonvolatile, they are used in applications where this property is important. Apart from BIOS, we see them in devices like digital cameras and video game systems. Read/Write Memory Read/write memory is commonly referred to as random access memory (RAM), even though ROM is also random access memory. This terminology is so entrenched in the literature that we follow it here with a cautionary note that RAM actually refers to RWM.

Like the DDR DRAM, it also performs two transfers per cycle. In contrast to the 8-byte-wide data bus of DRAMs, Rambus channel is a 2-byte data bus. However, by using multiple channels, we can increase the bandwidth of RDRAMs. 2 GB/s, sufficient for the 533-MHz FSB systems. From this brief discussion it should be clear that DDR SDRAMs and RDRAMs compete with each other in the high-end market. The race between these two DRAM technologies continues as Intel boosts its FSB to 800 MHz. 3 Storing Multibyte Data Storing data often requires more than a byte.
