What is ROM?
As indicated by its name, ROM stands for Read-only-memory, i.e., a memory that can only be read without offering modifications. ROM is a non-volatile storage medium that stores information permanently, even in case of loss of power in the component. The primary aim of ROM is to store the crucial instructions necessary to boot (start) the system. The contents of ROM cannot be re-programmed, re-write, tampered with, altered, or erased. ROM is inexpensive, reliable, and doesn’t require frequent refreshing. The different types of Read-only-memory are stated beneath:
What is a DVD ROM?
DVD typifies Digital Versatile Disc commonly apprehended as Digital Video Disc. It is a digital optical disc storage mechanism that acts as a reservoir for high-capacity data. DVD digitally stores various text, audio, and video data allowing users to download and disseminate data from their computers to other devices. A DVD ROM (Digital Versatile Disk-Read Only Memory) is an optical drive used to read the constituents of a DVD and doesn’t allow writing over the stored data. A DVD-ROM can play all the formats of a DVD, including single-sided, single-layered, double-sided, and double-layered discs.
The downfall of DVD-ROM:
The sale of DVDs has been on the decline for over a decade. According to CNBC, DVD sales account for less than 10% of the total market. The Global DVD Market is projected to reach USD 31 million by 2026, at a negative CAGR of -27.8% during the forecast period of 2022-2026. The heyday for DVDs started with the rise of digital downloads and streaming services. Unfortunately, the DVD-ROM yields far fewer benefits than modern storage solutions, rendering it obsolete. The drawbacks of DVD-ROM encompass more space acquisition, limited storage capacity, lack of security, larger size, cost-ineffectiveness, portability, compatibility issues, and physical transfer of data. The final nail in the coffin of DVD-ROM landed in 2018 when car manufacturing companies declared that there would be no DVD players in future cars.
The emergence of ROM USB:
Today’s data storage technology and faster transmission mechanisms are entirely digital and miniaturized in the sense that tiny pieces of hardware can handle the amount of information that would have needed dozens of individual DVDs. In this fast-paced era, people prefer devices that are time-saving and less labor-intensive one such device is ROM USB, which helps consumers to experience a futuristic digital storage slant. The Global ROM USB market is valued at USD 7.12 billion in the year 2021 and is projected to reach a value of USD 10.75 billion by 2028, growing at a (CAGR) of 7.1% in the forecast period (2022-2028). ROM USB retains information without power and can be reprogrammed without removing it from the computer. In addition, ROM USB allows the supplementary benefits stated underneath:
- High Security: Password is required to enable/disable the write access
- Enhanced Storage Capacity: Supports capacity of 8GB-32GB
- High Durability
- Facile integration
- It doesn’t require software installation for reading access
- Fast access time
- Faster transfer rate
- Low energy consumption
