Abstract

Intermittant errors are corrected, using existing paging store memory system facilities, by application of error correcting code (ECC) and cyclic redundancy code (CRC) techniques. The ECC is carried as extra bits in the word, and the CRC is carried as extra words at the end of the block/page.
