Abstract

This paper describes improvements in Random Access Memories (RAM). In some applications, a RAM (10) is used for read-only purposes. For example, in a system with a TPU, several microcodes are loaded and executed depending on parameters. Similarly, a communica- tion processor simultaneously operating substantial- ly different algorithms. In these applications avail- able RAM bandwidth is restricted such that the dam (14) bus has limited RAM access.
