There are two types of main memory, Random Access Memory (RAM) and Read Only Memory (ROM)
Random Access Memory (RAM)
Its purpose is to temporarily hold programs and data for processing. In modern computers it also holds the operating system
= Bus connections
The operation of cache memory
1. Cache fetches data from next to current addresses in main memory
2. CPU checks to see whether the next instruction it requires is in cache
3. If it is, then the instruction is fetched from the cache – a very fast position
4. If not, the CPU has to fetch next instruction from main memory - a much slower process
Uses backing storage e.g. hard disk as a temporary
Swaps programs and data between the hard-disk
