Memory ICs

Memory ICs (Integrated Circuits) are circuits that store digital data on a non-volatile basis. This means the information stored will remain even when the power is turned off.

FLASH memory ICs are often found in USB drives, digital cameras and mp3 players. They provide high data storage capacity with fast read/write access times and low power. EPROM (erasable programmable read-only memory) ICs are used for storing programs or other permanent data which can be erased and reprogrammed several times. ROM (read-only memory) ICs are non-volatile memories which use a mask ROM process to permanently store information such as firmware or microcode.

Dynamic RAM is another type of memory IC which stores data only as long as power is supplied and needs to be constantly refreshed to maintain its stored information. Static RAM, however, does not need regular refresh cycles so it is faster than dynamic RAM but also consumes more power. SRAM (static random access memory) EEPROM (electrically erasable programmable read-only memory) and FRAM (ferroelectric random access memory) are all variations of static RAM that offer increased storage capacities, longer life cycles and higher speed than standard static RAM devices while still using the same basic technology.
