Computer science software for k12 curriculum.
Visual Graphics Memory demonstrates a memory chip that stores 8 bit color data. The memory chip has 16 address lines and 8 data lines and shows how computer memory works.
The program simulates in 3D the operation of a typical dram graphics memory chip.
A color pallete features 8 bit colors that students program each memory address to produce a color in a block pixel.
Each memory location is accessible you can write either to each location.
Single bit or byte retrieval is possible. Memory is programmed individually by each cell.
The memory is organised as a memory matrix, this ensures an easy to use program for students.
In the simulations the data lines change to red when data travels through them.
In the visual graphics memory main window is a 3D representation of a simple memory chip. This is based on a VRAM chip and shows how computer memory works.
Each cell features a transistor and capacitor.
Students can write to and read from the virtual memory and set 16 different pixel blocks in 8 bit.
