ROM (Read-Only Memory) - Definition

ROM is an abbreviation for Read-Only Memory. It is an area of data storage devoted to information that will not be updated or changed. Image files stored in ROM were famously used in simple electronic video games (e.g., as backgrounds for Super Nintendo and Game Gear game titles). ROM is used less frequently today, as faster access rates have been achieved for data storage in Random Access Memory (RAM).
