3.3.4. Memory Types

The compiler maps user-defined arrays in source code to hardware memories. You can classify these hardware memories into the following categories:
  • Component Memory

    Component memory is memory allocated from memory resources (such as RAM blocks) available on the FPGA.

  • External Memory

    External memory is memory resources that are outside of the FPGA.
