eDRAM, edreams
Embedded DRAM eDRAM is dynamic random-access memory DRAM integrated on the same die or multi-chip module MCM1 of an application-specific integrated circuit ASIC or microprocessor eDRAM's cost-per-bit is higher when compared to equivalent standalone DRAM chips used as external memory, but the performance advantages of placing eDRAM onto the same chip as the processor outweigh the cost disadvantages in many applications

Embedding memory on the ASIC or processor allows for much wider buses and higher operation speeds, and due to much higher density of DRAM in comparison to SRAM, larger amounts of memory can be installed on smaller chips if eDRAM is used instead of eSRAM eDRAM requires additional fab process steps compared with embedded SRAM, which raises cost, but the 3× area savings of eDRAM memory offsets the process cost when a significant amount of memory is used in the design

eDRAM memories, like all DRAM memories, require periodic refreshing of the memory cells, which adds complexity However, if the memory refresh controller is embedded along with the eDRAM memory, the remainder of the ASIC can treat the memory like a simple SRAM type such as in 1T-SRAM It is also possible to use architectural techniques to mitigate the refresh overhead in eDRAM caches2

eDRAM is used in various products, including IBM's POWER7 processor,3 Intel's Haswell CPUs with GT3e integrated graphics,4 many game consoles and other devices, such as Sony's PlayStation 2, Sony's PlayStation Portable, Nintendo's GameCube, Nintendo's Wii, Nintendo's Wii U, Apple Inc's iPhone, Microsoft's Zune HD, and Microsoft's Xbox 360
