Flash Memory

A type of memory chip that is used for storing information over time.

Compared to other types of memory, flash memory retains information without electrical power, which is why flash memory is used for removable memory cards, as well as internal memory for data that should be retained when the device is turned off.

Popular types of removable flash memory cards include SD and microSD.
