Abstract

The memory organizations which comprise two distinct Instruction and Data busses permit instructions and data to be simultaneously read out from memory and thus provide a reduced number of memory accesses per machine cycle. However, when two distinct Instruction and Data memories are used, problems may arise due to the limited and fixed capacity of each of the memories.
