In this section we have examined several example designs for different configurations of dynamic memory as interfaced to Zilog Z80 processors, and their descendants. It is hoped that this "hands on" approach will lead to a greater understanding of how to implement dynamic memories in your projects.

If you are not interested in Zilog processors then you must extract what you need from this document and apply it to your choice of processors. Some of them can be quite a challenge.

After awhile these DRAM controller designs begin to look pretty familiar, and not nearly so scary. We have already covered many facets of the design. In the next section, we will examine design considerations for laying out a PCB, or worse yet, hand wiring.
