It contains data that is permanently stored and can only be read. This type of memory is used to store firmware and other essential software instructions that are required for the computer to boot up and perform basic functions. Unlike Random Access Memory (RAM), which is volatile and temporary, ROM retains its data even when the computer is turned off. Therefore, ROM is crucial for the proper functioning of a computer system.
