The memory address register is the register of a computer's control unit that contains the address of a register to fetch or store from or to the computer storage.

The memory address register is half of a minimal interface between a microprogram and computer storage. The other half is a memory data register.

Far more exotic memory interfaces exist, but this is the least that can work.
