16 Facts About Auxiliary memory


In contemporary usage, Auxiliary memory is usually semiconductor storage read-write random-access Auxiliary memory, typically DRAM or other forms of fast but temporary storage.

Spare Auxiliary memory can be utilized as RAM drive for temporary high-speed data storage.

FactSnippet No. 978,186

Main Auxiliary memory is directly or indirectly connected to the central processing unit via a Auxiliary memory bus.

FactSnippet No. 978,187

Many types of "ROM" are not literally read only, as updates to them are possible; however it is slow and Auxiliary memory must be erased in large portions before it can be re-written.
