Flash Memory

Flash memory is a type of non-volatile memory which does not need a constant source of electricity for it to retain it’s data. This has become very popular in many different devices such as digital cameras and music players, as well as thumb drives. Information can be transferred onto the flash memory storage device, and the device can be removed requiring no external power or batteries. The memory device can be then inserted into a different device or reader and transfer out the retained information.

Flash memory also has fast read access times, though not as fast as volatile DRAM memory used for main memory in PCs. It also has better kinetic shock resistance than hard disks do, and can withstand very high pressures and boiling water without damage when packaged in a ‘memory card’.
