CSA Group Assignment PROJECT GANTT CHART 0.2-Abstract In this assignment we have done research about CSA, on the topic of Memory architecture. Memory is an important part within the computer. It’s also knows as RAM. There are three parts to discuss about in this assignment which are RAM, register, and cache. We have done research on each of the parts. 1.1-Introduction On this assignment we have been ask to research for a question and we have decided to do question 3 which is the Memory Architecture of a computer system. Computer needs memory to run, for example we humans have memory to remember things that had happened in our past that almost the same with a computer’s memory is to remember its past processing to save time. There are many types of memory such as primary memory like RAM and secondary memories like ROM (Read only memory. Each of us had chosen a topic; which included RAM, Cache and Registers, which are the main memory system that transcends down to a hierarchy. 1.2-Register Registers are local storage areas within the processor that are used to hold data that is being worked on by the processor[Cha01]. They are small permanent storage locations within 6 Computer System Architecture AICT001-3-2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
