Craig C Hansen, John G Campbell, Timothy B Robinson: Accessing system that reduces access times due to transmission delays and I/O access circuitry in a burst mode random access memory. MicroUnity Systems Engineering, Burns Doane Swecker & Mathis, April 25, 1995: US05410670 (61 worldwide citation)

A large burst mode memory accessing system includes N discrete sub-memories and three main I/O ports. Data is stored in the sub-memories so that the sub-memories are accessed depending on their proximity to the main I/O ports. Three parallel pipelines provide a data path to/from the main I/O ports a ...
