you would be able to • State the use of PROM. CM305.Objectives On completion of this period.73 2 . • Distinguish between UVEPROM and EEPROM.

Recap • In the last class we have studied about • The advantages & disadvantages of dynamic RAM over static RAM. • Need for RAM. CM305.73 3 .

Do You Know ? • What are the advantages and disadvantages of dynamic RAM over static RAM ? • What is the need for RAM? CM305.73 4 .

• PROM’s come from the manufacturer as unprogrammed.Programmable Read Only Memory (PROM) • The ROM which allows the user to store the data by the process of programming is PROM. • Once a PROM is programmed . it cannot be changed.73 5 . CM305. • These are programmed to meet the user needs.

to store small quantity of data. • PROM programmers are available to facilitate the procedure of programming to store. • PROM is more economical . CM305.73 6 .Need for PROM • PROM allows the user to program the unit in his own laboratory.

73 7 . • There are two types of EPROM’s. (2) Electrically Erasable PROM (EEPROM). CM305. (1) Ultra Violet Erasable PROM (UVEPROM).Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EPROM) • An EPROM can be reprogrammed by first erasing the existing program.

CM305. EEPROM : The EEPROM can be erased and reprogrammed using electrical pulses.73 8 .UVEPROM: The Ultra Violet light is sent through the window to erase all the data stored in ROM.

• The voltage on the floating gate structure permits the storage. UVEPROM • These devices can be erased and programmed with Ultra Violet light.Comparision between EEPROM and UVEPROM EEPROM • These devices can be erased and programmed with electrical signals.73 9 . • The photo current from the floating gate structure permits the storage. CM305.

EEPROM UVEPROM • Speed of the operation is more. • Easy to construct and economical. • Difficult to construct and expensive. • In UVEPROM all memory locations are simultaneously erasable.73 10 . • Speed of the operation is less. CM305. • In EEPROM the locationby-location erasable is possible.

73 11 .Summary We have discussed about • The use of PROM • The comparision between UVEPROM and EEPROM CM305.

73 12 .QUIZ (1) The PROM is a _______ (a) Programmable Read Only Memory. (b) Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory. (c) Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory. (d) None of the above CM305.

(2) The location by location erasable is possible in ______ (a) PROM (b) EEPROM (c) UVEPROM (d) All of the above.73 13 . CM305.
