Flash Memory


Flash Memory was created by Fujio Masuoka in 1984 while he was an employee at Toshiba. The new storage was made to replace all of its predecessors in random access memory. Flash is known as a type of EEPROM (electronically erasable programmable read-only memory). The user is able to add and delete chunks of data of any size instantaneously or in a “flash,” which is where the technology gets its name.
