A type of random-access memory (RAM) that consists of tiny ferrite rings, which can be magnetized by electric pulses to indicate a binary "1" bit. See RAM.
Ferroelectric Memory; a recently designednonvolatile memory technology; pioneered by Ramtron Int. Corp., ColoradoSprings, Colorado. FRAM has several advantages over 'flash memory'; amongthem are faster reprogramming speeds, less power, and a single 3-V powersupply. But, unlike 'flash cells', reading FRAM cells, is destructive,so that the data must be rewritten into the cell every time it is read.
(also called Fe-RAM) A non-volatile memory technology (i.e., it does not lose its data if the power is shut off). FRAM can read data thousands of times faster at far lower voltage than other non-volatile memory devices. GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) A packet-based 2.5G (in comparison to 3G) telecommunication technology. GPRS supports exchange rates up to 114 Kbps, allowing wireless Internet and other multimedia services. See Broadband, UMTS, EDGE.
