memory bank is referring to the slot on the motherboard that holds the stick of memory know as ram ,usually at least 2 memory banks on a motherboard ,and usually best if you only have one stick of ram that you put it in bank0,and not bank1,that is usually how they are numbered starting with 0 then 1,2,3 .most banks i've seen on a motherboard is 4 but some have 2 and 3 ,and ram stands for random access memory.have a look here .when searching put motherboard in the search with memory bank.

thanks a lot friend

i have a urgent question here about FPGA:

i would like to know merely why we can speed up processing when using FPGA..?that means how are data passed and fetched? thanks a lot

Caperjack, memory bank does not refer to the slots on the motherboard. Memory bank refers to a match between the processor's data bus width and the RAM's bit width. For example if you are using a CPU with a 64 bit data bus, one 64 bit DIMM makes a full bank. If you are working with an older motherboard with RIMM sockets, four 16 bit RIMMs or two 32 bit RIMMs makes a full bank.

A memory bank is a logical unit of storage in electronics, which is hardware dependent. In computer the memory bank may be determined by the memory access controller and the CPU along with physical organization of the hardware memory slots.

its actuall written on some boards as bank1 bank2 3-4 ect ect
