    CAS is the control signal used on RAM to access data.

    Column Address Strobe (CAS) latency, or CL, is the delay time between the moment a memory controller tells the memory module to access a particular memory column on a RAM memory module, and the moment the data from given array location is available on the module's output pins.

    CAS is actually the control signal that is used to read the memory cells of a RAM.

    CAS Latency or CL is the time delay between the signal and the time the data is placed on output pins.

    Sure! Why not? :happy:
    The time gap taken by the RAM after receiving "Column access
    command" and before accessing a "Particular memory location" is called
    CAS or Common Access Strobe.

    Now, Dear admin, you decide who is correct... :p
