Abstract

This main memory storage system takes advantage of the processing capability of microprocessors and serial memory storage devices to perform memory housekeeping functions independently from a central processing unit (CPU). The memory controller includes input and output buffers which interface with a CPU or system channel and has system-independent control and addressing logic for the storage of data in main storage.
