26 Mar RAM
Random Access Memory. Volatile memory based on integrated circuits filled with bistable transistor assemblies called “Flip-Flops.” RAM is where programs and the data or information they use reside while your computer is turned on. When you turn it off, whatever was in the computer’s RAM goes away unless there is a power source (such as a battery) that actively maintains the charge and refreshes the current in the RAM.
