What does RAMDAC mean?
Random Access Memory Digital-to-Analog Converter (RAMDAC) is a chip that converts digital video signal from computer into the analog signal needed by computer display. A RAMDAC actually consists of a small static RAM (SRAM) to store the color map and three digital-to-analog converters (DACs), one for each primary color - red, green, and blue.
