L2 RAM memories

The L2 memory system contains several RAM memories that support optional ECC or parity error detection mechanisms.

Any RAM memory that uses ECC support can perform single-bit error correction and double-bit error detection. Contents of the RAM memories with parity support can invalidate entries if a parity error is detected because this data is associated with read-only structures.

The following table shows all RAM memories contained in the L2 memory system.
