         Partial Read Only Memory (ROM), "P-ROM"

From V.E.R.A. -- Virtual Entity of Relevant Acronyms (September 2014) :

         Programmable Read Only Memory (ROM, IC)

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  Programmable Read-Only Memory
      (PROM) A kind of ROM which can be written using a
     PROM programmer.  The contents of each bit is determined by a
     fuse or antifuse.  The memory can be programmed once after
     manufacturing by "blowing" the fuses, which is an irreversible
     process.  Blowing a fuse opens a connection while blowing an
     antifuse closes a connection (hence the name).  Programming is
     done by applying high-voltage pulses which are not encountered
     during normal operation.
