PROM
En Gran Bretaña el término prom es la forma abreviada de promenade concert, y hace referencia a un concierto de música clásica en el que una parte del público permanece de pie en una zona del auditorio reservada al efecto. La serie de conciertos de este tipo más conocida es la que se celebra cada verano en el Royal Albert Hall de Londres, y que tuvo su origen en 1895 a partir de una idea del director de orquesta Henry Wood. Actualmente convertidos en una institución nacional, destaca entre todas las actuaciones la llamada Last Night of the Proms en la que se interpretan piezas de carácter patriótico, entre otras de repertorio.
En Estados Unidos un prom es un baile de gala que se celebra para los alumnos de un centro de educación secundaria o universitaria. De todos estos bailes el más famoso es el senior prom, al que asisten los alumnos del último año de una high school y que se considera un acontecimiento de gran importancia para los adolescentes estadounidenses. Los alumnos acuden normalmente con su pareja y visten de etiqueta: esmoquin los chicos y traje de noche las chicas.

The prototype system leverages memory on OpenCAPI, as a first step in creating a flexible platform to enable the research of new memory types in real-world environments.
The NA362R comes with four DDR4 R-DIMM/U-DIMM sockets that can provide system memory of up to 128GB and supports both ECC and non-ECC memory types. It offers two 2.5" SATA3 HDD and one mSATA for storage.
As part of the collaboration, Rambus will develop a flexible prototype hybrid memory platform using the OpenCAPI interface to demonstrate performance of multiple memory types in real-world server applications.
The results show significant differences in the activation of the different memory types, mainly in both frontal regions and in the right central region during 2.5 seconds prior to the retrieval of memory (bimanual response) (see Table 1).
Each of these memory types differ in terms of performance (bandwidth, latency).
The deterioration does not tend to be either uniform or general: "It takes place in certain memory types more than in others.
Long-term memory can be classified as implicit or explicit, and these memory types are stored in different regions of the brain.
Observing the model in Figure 1 reveals that human memory consists of three other memory types, namely: 1) Sensory memory (very fast and retains the stimuli received) 2) Working Memory (stores information that will be the basis for reasoning and learning) 3) Long Term Memory (information to be used indefinitely).
The nice thing about HMC technology is that the vertical stacking and IO interface of this memory architecture can work for other memory technologies, such as NAND flash and newer memory types that are in development, such as magneto-resistive random-access memory (MRAM), and phase change memory (PCM).
