... expanded from 32 bits to 64 bits, and all arithmetic and logical operations, memory-to-register and register-to-memory operations, etc. 32-bit programs, those programs will only work on systems with processors that have the feature ... bit The "NX" bit (bit 63 of the page table entry) allows the operating system to specify which pages of virtual address space can contain executable code and which cannot ...
Swapspace - Addressing Limits On 32-bit Hardware - Main Memory Smaller Than Virtual Memory
... In most systems, the size of a process's virtual address space is much larger than the available main memory ... In these systems, the amount of main memory used by a process is, at most, the amount of physical main memory available ... The amount of physical main memory available is limited by the number of address bits on the address bus that connects the CPU to main memory—for example, the 68000 CPU, and the i386SX CPU, both ...

The memory storage was based on earlier EPROM and EEPROM technologies ... Altering the contents of a particular memory location involved copying the entire field into an off-chip buffer memory, erasing the field, modifying the data ...

Famous quotes containing the words systems and/or memory:

    The geometry of landscape and situation seems to create its own systems of time, the sense of a dynamic element which is cinematising the events of the canvas, translating a posture or ceremony into dynamic terms. The greatest movie of the 20th century is the Mona Lisa, just as the greatest novel is Gray’s Anatomy.
    —J.G. (James Graham)

    What has kept the world safe from the bomb since 1945 has not been deterrence, in the sense of fear of specific weapons, so much as it’s been memory. The memory of what happened at Hiroshima.
    John Hersey (b. 1914)
