Large Scale Integration (LSI)Random Access Memory (RAM)Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI)Read Only Memory (ROM)
The correct answer isRead-Only Memory (ROM).
You are watching: Which of the following is an example of nonvolatile memory?
RAM, which stands for random accessmemory, andROM, which stands for read-onlymemory, are both present in your computer.RAMis avolatile memorythat temporarily stores the files you are working on.ROMis anon–volatile memorythat permanently stores instructions for your computer.
Non-volatile memory is a computer memory that can retain the stored information even when not powered. Examples of non-volatile memory include read-only memory (see ROM), flash memory, most types of magnetic computer storage devices (e.g. hard disks, floppy discs, and magnetic tape), optical discs.Volatile memory is computer memory that requires power to maintain the stored information. Most modern semiconductor volatile memory is either Static RAM (see SRAM) or dynamic RAM (see DRAM).In a computer, memory refers to the devices used to store information for use in a computer.
The term primary memory is used for storage systems that function at high speed (i.e. RAM), as a distinction from secondary memory, which provides program and data storage that is slow to access but offers higher memory capacity.If needed, primary memory can be stored in secondary memory, through a memory management technique called “virtual memory.”An archaic synonym for memory is storage.
|LSI||This is also called Large scale Integration.Large-scale integration (LSI) is the process of integrating or embedding thousands of transistors on a single silicon semiconductor microchip.LSI technology was conceived in the mid-1970s when computer processor microchips were under development.|
