Rom Monitor

A monitor generally provides a simple command prompt, with options for reading/writing memory and perhaps some power-on testing facilities which are useful before the kernel boots.

ROM monitors invariably include boot loader functionality, but if your device goes into production you may want a standalone boot loader or a stripped-down ROM monitor.
