Acronym for programmable read-only memory. A type of read-only memory (ROM) that allows data to be written into the device with hardware called a PROM programmer. After a PROM has been programmed, it is dedicated to that data, and it cannot be reprogrammed. See also EEPROM, EPROM, ROM (definition 2).
(acronym for programmable read-only memory) In computing, a memory device in the form of an integrated circuit (chip) that can be programmed after manufacture to hold information permanently. PROM chips are empty of information when manufactured, unlike ROM (read-only memory) chips, which have information built into them. Other memory devices are EPROM (erasable programmable read-only memory) and RAM (random-access memory).Programmable Read Only Memory. A semiconductor memory whose contents cannot be changed by the computer after it has been programmed.
Čip koji omogućava upisivanje programa samo jednom i to u fabrici računara. Ovakvi čipovi se nalaze u opsegu između dve krajnosti: čipovi koje je proizvođač već programirao i EPROM čipovi, koji mogu da se brišu i ponovo programiraju.
