Second of the five elements, we will explain about the memory that is in charge of storage.
Memory has two operations: Memorizing, and reading storage data and instructions.
Normally, either the "Memorizing" or "Reading" operation is selected by the signal from the CPU.

In the case of a microcontroller, the "Memorizing" operation is said to "write" because the CPU instructs to the memory for "writing".
