This chapter has cataloged typical types of RAM and discussed their performance characteristics. A wide range of commercial material can be obtained for RCSR application. Nevertheless, whether commercially available RAM is purchased or an effort is made to tailor a new design to the specific problem, RAM application will usually involve a trade-off between performance, cost, complexity, and ease of manufacture and maintenance. Only through knowledge of RAM performance, familiarity with the types of RAM available, and good engineering judgment will the best RCSR solution to a given problem be chosen.
