What is ROM?
Read-only memory (ROM) is a class of storage media used in computers and other electronic devices. Data stored in ROM cannot be modified (at least not quickly/easily), and it is therefore mainly used to distribute firmware.

1999-12-09 Interfacing 64Mb HSDRAM to Motorola's MPC860 processor family
The Motorola MPC860 32-bit PowerPC-compatible processors are used for high performance networking and data communications applications. These processors have a 32-bit external memory bus which supports a maximum read and write bandwidth of 200MBps using 7.5ns HSDRAM. The MPC860 has two user programmable memory controller modules called UPMs to eliminate the need for any external memory controller logic. Generally only one UPM is required to support external memory. The other UPM is typically used to control boot ROM or a system peripheral. In addition, the processor has an internal refresh generator, page size registers, and dynamic bus sizing to simplify the interface to HSDRAM devices. The processor is available in 33MHz, 50MHz, and 66MHz clock speed options. This application note describes the 50MHz version and how a 64Mb HSDRAM is interfaced with it.

1999-12-22 Image rotation algorithm series 32000 Graphics
Fast image rotation of 90 and 270 is important in printer applications, since both portrait and landscape orientation printing may be desired. With a fast image rotation algorithm, only the portrait orientation fonts need to be stored. This, in turn, minimizes ROM storage requirements. This application note shows a fast image rotation algorithm that may be used to rotate an 8 pixel-by-8 line image. Larger image sizes may be rotated by successive application of the rotation primitive.
