Random Access Memory or RAM is a form of data storage that can be accessed randomly at any time, in any order and from any physical location., allowing quick access and manipulation.
Read-only memory or ROM is also a form of data storage that can not be easily altered or reprogrammed. Stores instructions that are not necessary for re-booting up to make the computer operate when it is switched off. They are hardwired.
Random Access Memory
RAM allows the computer to read data quickly to run applications. It allows reading and writing.
ROM stores the program required to initially boot the computer. It only allows reading.
RAM is volatile i.e. its contents are lost when the device is powered off.
It is non-volatile i.e. its contents are retained even when the device is powered off.
The two main types of RAM are static RAM and dynamic RAM.
The types of ROM include PROM, EPROM and EEPROM.
