It is called mask ROM, and it was introduced along with the integrated circuit. Mask ROM is made up of a grid of word lines, called the address input, and bit lines, called the data output, that are...

The earliest models of IBM mainframe had read-only control store; however, the System/370 and successor models were made and loaded their micro programs from floppy disks...
