NVRAM – Non-Volatile Random Access Memory
Abbreviation of Non-Volatile Random Access Memory, a type of memory that retains its contents when power is turned off. One type of NVRAM is SRAM that is made non-volatile by connecting it to a constant power source such as a battery. Another type of NVRAM uses EEPROMchips to save its contents when power is turned off. In this case, NVRAM is composed of a combination of SRAM and EEPROM chips.
