Data Storage Technology / System Integration & Performance

What is the difference between static and dynamic RAM?

Static RAM is implemented entirely with transistors and Dynamic RAM uses transistors
and capacitors. DRAM circuitry is less complex than SRAM circuitry. DRAM uses capacitors
to store data dynamically. It is considered dynamic because capacitors quickly lose
their charge and require thousands of refresh operations per second. In contrast,
SRAM stores data with transistors only. The transistors implement complex ...

Java Exception Handling

Java Exception Handling

Moutain State University Java Study Notes
(Week 1 CIS 220 Computer Science II)

Java exception handling is based in part on Andrew Koenig's and Bjarne
Stroustrup's paper, "Exception Handling for C++ (revised).
(Reference: A. Koenig, and B. Stroustrup, "Exception Handling for C++
(revised)." Proceedings of the Usenix C++ Conference, pp. 149-176, San
Francisco, April 1990.)

Only classes that extend THROWABLE ( dirctly or indirectly
can be used with exception handling.

Compiled and Interpreted Programs

Mountain State University Systems Architecture Discussion Assignment

Discussion Compiled and Interpreted Programs

Our assignment was to compare and contrast the execution of compiled programs to interpreted programs in terms of CPU and memory utilization.

Compiled Program
For most programming languages, there are four source code instruction types:
1. Data Declarations
Defines the name and data type of one or more program variables. When a compiler reads a data declaration, it allocates memory to store data item. The amount of ...
