Why ROM is a RAM ?


As a computer student , if we are asked about the opposite term for RAM , the obvious answer is ROM.

So here we are just sharing some thoughts on why your ROM is also a RAM !


RAM or random access memory refers to the method by which the data is accessed   from  your memory .  Random Access means data can be accessed from your memory in a random manner , ie in any order irrespective of the order in which you are storing the data .


The opposite  term for RAM is Sequential access memory or SAM . ie data can be accessed from that kind of media in a sequential l manner only . Tape drives are classic examples of SAM.





So back to our point , all the electronic memories you are using in computers can access data randomly so we can call them RAM.  primarily There are two types of  RAM available , the Read Write -RAM and Read Only -RAM , ie RW-RAM and RO-RAM. According to the normal usable of the term , we prefer to call the RW-RAM as just RAMs and RO-RAMs as ROMs.

So bear in mind the fact that  ROM is also a RAM , but for your examinations , do not  go for this story if you are expecting an A grade for your computer paper
