processing in memory (PIM)

To reduce latency, computer architectures place processors as close as possible to the data to be processed.

With Processor in Memory or Processing in Memory( PIM), the processor and its RAM are integrated directly in the memory chip. The PIM concept reduces latency and thus increases throughput and is ideal for in-memory computing( IMC).

In standard computers, the programs and data are held in hard disks, solid-state drives and other storage media and fetched from the corresponding memories during computing operations, resulting in latencies that slow down throughput.
