Flash Memory

A rewritable memory chip that holds its content without power. Flash evolved from the EEPROM chip, and its name was coined by Toshiba to express how much faster it could be erased ("in a flash").

Flash is widely used for storage modules such as USB drives and digital camera memory cards. It is also packaged as stand-alone chips for circuit board mounting. For example, years ago, flash BIOS chips replaced ROM BIOS chips in PCs so that the BIOS could be updated in place instead of being removed and replaced.
