An architecture is proposed for multimegabit dynamic RAMs (random-access memories) that achieves higher testability and performance than the conventional four-quadrant RAMs. Applying the principle of divide and conquer, the RAM is partitioned into modules, each appearing as the leaf node of a binary interconnect network. Such a network carries the address/data/control bus, permitting the nodes
