A memory card or flash card is used for storing digital information through electronic flash memory. These memory cards are used in digital cameras, mobile phones, laptop computers, MP3 players, and video game consoles. They are compact, recordable, and they retain data without power. PC Cards were among the first commercial memory card formats to come out in the 1990s but are now relegated to industrial applications and for connecting I/O devices such as modems. A number of other memory...

A USB flash drive is a flash memory data storage device that is integrated with a Universal Serial Bus. USB flash drives are most often removable and rewritable, and are much smaller than other portable storage devices. They are usually used for similar purposes that floppy disks were. Flash drives use the USB mass storage standard that is supported by most modern operating systems such as Windows and Mac OS X. The first USB flash drives were sold commercially in 2000. Aside from physical...

Read only memory, or ROM, is a type of storage media that is used by computers and other electronic devices. The data stored in ROM cannot be modified, therefore it is largely used to distribute firmware. The most straightforward type of ROM is about as old as semiconductor technology. 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...

Random access memory (RAM) is a form of computer data storage that takes the form of integrated circuits in order to allow stored data to be accessed in any order. Random refers to the idea that any piece of data can be restored in a constant time, regardless of its physical location and whether or not it is related to the prior piece of data. The word RAM is often associated with unstable types of memory where the information is lost after the power is switched off. Magnetic core memory...

In computing, memory applies to the state information of a computing system because it is kept active in some physical structure. The term "memory" is used for the fast information in physical systems, as a distinction from physical systems which are slow to access. The term also refers to temporary state devices. Informally, computer memory refers to the physical devices used to store data or programs for later use in an electronic computer. Computers use information in a binary code that is...
