    Non-volatile memory, as we all know is to retain information without constant electric power supply. The best-known and most common form of NVRAM that is commonly used (Non volatile random access memory) is the flash memory that is similar to the concept of EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory). Flash memory has a built in 'charge pump' that slowly builds up power to release at a higher voltage than a battery can provide. Therefore a battery cannot provide the sufficient power needed to change the state of a bit in the flip-flop circuit from 1 to 0 or vice versa. For this reason, flash memory has a short lifetime of between ...
