Ajay J Padgaonkar, Sumit K Mitra: Security for digital signal processor program memory. Donald R Greene, May 7, 1991: US05014191 (60 worldwide citation)

The processor executes programs from an internal EEPROM or from an external source. The EEPROM can be read either by a special operating (test) mode of the processor or by an instruction executing under normal operating mode from the EEPROM or from an external source. Similarly, the EEPROM can be pr ...
