Block RAM (BRAM) on an FPGA

Last Modified: January 11, 2018

Block RAM (BRAM) is a type of random access memory embedded throughout an FPGA for data storage.

You can use BRAM to accomplish the following tasks:

  • Transfer data between multiple clock domains by using local FIFOs
  • Transfer data between an FPGA target and a host processor by using a DMA FIFO
  • Transfer data between FPGA targets by using a peer-to-peer FIFO
  • Store large data sets on an FPGA target more efficiently than RAM built from look-up tables
