this question has something to do with programming but since it masters the hardware layer I created a new account here to avoid being out-of-scope on stack overflow.
I'm quite novice in the hardware field, I'd like to know how many bits a RAM's cell contains.
For example :
I define a var (int)
Knowing that an integer is 32 bits, if the location of var is let say 0x125 :
- is the system reminding var as the value contained from 0x125 to 0x158 (32 bits allocated)
- is it just reminding the location 0x125 of the cell that contains a particular number of capacitors (regarding the technology of the memory card) ?
in other words : is the address pointing to a set of bits or is the address pointing just one bit (the number of bits to read from that position would be determined by the system) ?
Any reviews would be much appreciated.
