For the detailed solution to the question, Select the best description of the fusible link PROM

PROMs store long-term data in digital electronic systems, typically low-level programmes like firmware or microcode. It is first set up as a blank piece of memory, then the information is programmed into it.

Burning a PROM is the technical term for the programming process. A PROM programmer or PROM burner is used to programme the PROM. Additionally, it is referred to as a one-time programmable device because it cannot change the data stored there. A line in a PROM or PLD chip that may blow apart to programme the circuit is known as a fusible link. It operates similarly to a fuse, which stops conducting current when it blows.

Hence, Option (A) is the correct answer.
