ROM (read only memory): It is the part of memory in which the data or the software related to the hardware is stored which is not to be changed frequently..

Athought the EPROM and EEPROM available now in the market have the ability to be changed easily..

RAM (Random Access Memory): It is the part of memory in which the data can be accesed fast and at random and the continuous movement of the storage is not necessary. like CD and dvds.. it is fast but the volatile since the data stored in it is erased after the system is powered off.

Cache memory: It is the part of memory in which the data from different intermediate calculations or processes is stored where the original data is expensive to fetch...
