Rebecca L Stamm, Ruth I Bahar, Raymond L Strouble, Nicholas D Wade, John H Edmondson: Ensuring write ordering under writeback cache error conditions. Digital Equipment Corporation, Arnold White & Durkee, September 13, 1994: US05347648 (118 worldwide citation)

Writeback transactions from a processor and cache are fed to a main memory through a writeback queue, and non-writeback transactions from the processor and cache are fed to the main memory through a non-writeback queue. When a cache error is detected, an error transition mode (ETM) is entered that p ...
