It's perfectly fine to call it flash RAM, google for it. It definitely isn't a ROM memory, is it? smile.gif

if you want to argue semantics, ROM is also RAM (random access memory, as opposed to serial memory or block-format memory like CF flash or hard drives). What is commonly called RAM should be called RWRAM [read write random access memory], and ROM should be RORAM or something smile.gif

However, sticking to the convention...

Flash is an evolution of EEROM (electrically eraseable read only memory), and is totally different to say battery backed SRAM, and different again from SDRAM and DDSDRAM aka DDR.

Flash, when erasing and writing is definitely NOT random access, it reverts to block mode, so it would be RORAMBWE (read-only-random-access-memory/block-write-erase)!!

sorry, but I used to be an embedded micros person, so I've had to cope with the awfully long list of rival technologies and the battle-grounds which came along.
