What is Flash Memory?

Flash memory is a type of non-volatile computer memory that can be erased and reprogrammed in blocks. Unlike magnetic storage devices, USB drives, or disk drives, flash memory does not need to be continuously rewritten to keep data. 

This makes it ideal for use in embedded devices where its small size and low cost make it easy to implement.

How does it work?

Flash memory is built into a microcontroller and is used to store data that the microcontroller needs to remember during its operation. This technology has made it possible for engineers to build small, low-power, and cheap devices. 

It is capable of storing a large amount of data in a small space. The memory works by electronically storing information in non-volatile cells. When the power supply turns

off, the stored information remains unchanged until it is read again.
