In MIPS CPU architecture, we know there are instruction memory and data memory,I do not understand whether they are both SRAM,and if yes, are they the same Sram?Thanks

Instruction Memory and Data Memory act as Cache for providing fast access. Normally Cache are made up of SRAM. So most likely, Instruction Memory and Data Memory are SRAM

Except Instruction memory stores instructions while Data Memory stores datas,are there any other differences? Like control signals,for example,clk,readmem,writemem,datain,dataout?
