EEPROM (electrically erasable programmable read-only memory)?

EEPROM was created by George Perlegos in 1978 at Intel. EEPROM is a sort of non-volatile memory utilized in PCs, incorporated in microcontrollers for smart cards and remote keyless systems, and other electronic devices to store relatively small amounts of data by allowing individual bytes to be eradicated and reprogrammed. EEPROMs were restricted to single-byte activities, which made them slower, however modern EEPROMs permit multi-byte page tasks.
