Similarly, on the restoration of registers from the backing store, a collection of attribute bits saved in the backing register is transferred to a temporary collection register.
A cassette recording system having both a primary memory (1) and an auxiliary memory (50) associated with the cassette.
A method and system for accessing memory using an auxiliary memory is presented.
Based on this indication the store instruction is given access directly to the main memory or is routed to main memory through an auxiliary memory.
The auxiliary memory may be used to retain programming information.
The HDD is a fixed auxiliary memory device.
The inventive concept provides the possibility to employ non-volatile memory as a kind of cache memory for accessing mass storage, wherein the fixed memory comprises at least one non-volatile memory and at least one mass storage.
Moreover, from terminal point of view, the access to the mass storage is simplified since data is only stored and retrieved from the non-volatile memory independent on the kind of mass storage combined with the non-volatile memory.
The mailbox (5) includes a main memory (7) and an ancillary memory (13, 15).
The employment of non-volatile memory in combination with mass storage offers several advantages.
Further, the non-volatile memory acting as a cache memory increases the access speed of the mass storage.
The storage device as an auxiliary as well as a useful store.
Both have several storage entries.
In response to a read signal, the mailbox (5) transmits data from the ancillary memory (13, 15) and replenishes the ancillary memory (7) by transferring data to it from the main memory (7).
The blackboard stores facts used during an execution cycle.
A mass storage memory system and method of operation is disclosed.
An adaptation to different mass storage technologies can be obtained easily without modifying the access to the non-volatile memory of the mobile device.
The printing apparatus includes a central processing unit for performing the above method, intercoupled with a bar code printer, memory, and secondary storage.
