It allows for quick and temporary storage of data that can be read from and written to by the computer's processor. ROM (Read-Only Memory) is a type of non-volatile memory that stores permanent instructions and data that cannot be modified or erased by normal computer operations. It contains firmware or software instructions that are essential for booting up the computer and initializing hardware components.
