SSDs based on volatile memory, such as DRAM, are characterized by ultra fast data access, typically less than 0.01 milliseconds.
Such memory macros can be classified into two types; high speed RAM (Random Access Memory) used temporarily during data processing and NVM (Non Volatile Memory) used for data retention during power-off and/or stand-by state.
