Definition: page mode memory


An earlier speed enhancement to dynamic RAM (DRAM) chips. Also known as "fast page mode" (FPM) memory, the row of bits is selected only once for all columns within the row. Previously, each bit was accessed by pulsing its row and column. EDO, SDRAM, DDR and RDRAM memory technologies followed page mode memory. See dynamic RAM.
