Portion of an Exatron circuit board for the TRS-80 Model 1 Exatron Stringy Floppy showing the ROM chip labeled "LICHEN"

Computer memory such as analog memory, flash memory and read only memory are included


  • Analog memory - the storage of information in a continuous and non-discrete format
  • Associative memory - the use of multiple databases storing structured and unstructured information and the making of associations between that stored information similar to the human brain
  • Buffer storage - the part of RAM used for the temporary storage of data that is to be sent to a device
  • Cache memory - RAM memory that is more readily accessible by a microprocessor than regular RAM
  • Content addressable storage
  • Flash memory - non-volatile computer storage chips that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed
  • Magnetic memory - the storage of data using a magnetized medium
  • Memory management - the managing of computer memory to ensure maximum performance
  • Nonvolatile memory - memory that is retained even without power
  • Phase change memory - or PCME, a non-volatile type of computer memory that exploits the unique behaviors of chalcogenide glass
  • Random access memory - or RAM, the use of integrated circuits to store data accessed in any order with a worst case performance of constant time
  • Read only memory - or ROM, data storage that cannot be modified, or that can be modified only with difficulty
  • Read-write memory - memory that can be easily rewritten and read, unlike ROM
  • Registers - also known as a processor register, the small amount of storage inside a CPU that allows for speedy access to some data, such as addresses
  • Scanning probe data storage
  • Semiconductor memory - memory kept on an integrated circuit
