Keywords:Calculating wait states? access times? memory?

The number of wait states for a particular memory device refers to the number of clock cycles that pass before reaching the access time of the device. Data should be accessible after every clock cycle. However, the access time of a memory device may be longer than one clock period. There is a waiting period that includes a number of clock cycles. Given the access time and clock speed, the number of wait states can easily be calculated.
