What happen to the data stored in SRAM if the power shuts down?

Latest Updated:03/16/2012

Question:

If the power supply of the SRAM is shut down without a backup battery or super capacitor, what will happen to the data stored in SRAM?

Answer:

SRAM data will be destroyed in this case. If the power supply of the SRAM is reapplied after data has been destroyed, the data changes randomly to ""0"" or ""1“.
