12 Digital Circuits 12 Types of Memories Static Information are stored in latches remains valid as long as power is applied short read/write cycle Dynamic Information are stored in the form of charges on capacitors the stored charge tends to discharge with time need to be refreshed (read and write back) reduced power consumption Larger memory capacity

13 Digital Circuits 13 Volatile lose stored information when power is turned off SRAM, DRAM Non-volatile Retains its stored information after the removal of power ROM EPROM, EEPROM Flash memory

21 Digital Circuits 21 Random Access Memory RAS, CAS Addressing Separate addressing into two cycles: Row Address, Column Address Saves on package pins, speeds RAM access for sequential bits! Read Cycle Read Row Row Address Latched Read Bit Within Row Column Address Latched Tri-state Outputs !

22 Digital Circuits 22 Random Access Memory (1) Latch Row Address Read Row (2) WE low (3) CAS low: replace data bit (4) RAS high: write back the modified row (5) CAS high to complete the memory cycle Write Cycle Timing !

23 Digital Circuits Error Detection And Correction Improve the reliability of a memory unit A simple error detection scheme a parity bit (Sec. 3-9) a single bit error can be detected, but cannot be corrected An error-correction code generates multiple parity check bits the check bits generate a unique pattern, called a syndrome the specific bit in error can be identified

24 Digital Circuits 24 Hamming Code k parity bits are added to an n-bit data word (2 k –1 n + k) The bit positions are numbered in sequence from 1 to n + k Those positions numbered as a power of 2 are reserved for the parity bits The remaining bits are the data bits

25 Digital Circuits 25 Example: 8-bit data word Include 4 parity bits and the 8-bit word 12 bits 2 k –1 n + k, n = 8 k = 4 Bit position: P 1 P 2 1P 4 100P Calculate the parity bits: even parity assumption P 1 = XOR of bits (3, 5, 7, 9, 11) = = 0 P 2 = XOR of bits (3, 6, 7, 10, 11) = = 0 P 4 = XOR of bits (5, 6, 7, 12) = = 1 P 8 = XOR of bits (9, 10, 11, 12) = = 1 Store the 12-bit composite word in memory. Bit position:

26 Digital Circuits 26 When the 12 bits are read from the memory Check bits are calculated C 1 = XOR of bits (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11) C 2 = XOR of bits (2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11) C 4 = XOR of bits (4, 5, 6, 7, 12) C 8 = XOR of bits (8, 9, 10, 11, 12) If no error has occurred Bit position: C = C 8 C 4 C 2 C 1 = 0000

27 Digital Circuits 27 One-bit error error in bit 1 C 1 = XOR of bits (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11) = 1 C 2 = XOR of bits (2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11) = 0 C 4 = XOR of bits (4, 5, 6, 7, 12) = 0 C 8 = XOR of bits (8, 9, 10, 11, 12) = 0 C 8 C 4 C 2 C 1 = 0001 error in bit 5 C 8 C 4 C 2 C 1 = 0101 Two-bit error errors in bits 1 and 5 C 8 C 4 C 2 C 1 = 0100

28 Digital Circuits 28 The Hamming code can be used for data of nay length k check bits 2 k –1 n + k

29 Digital Circuits 29 Single-Error Correction, Double-Error Detection Hamming code Can detect and correct only a single error Multiple errors may not be detected. Hamming code + a parity bit Can detect double errors and correct a single error. The additional parity bit is the XOR of all the other bits. E.g.: the previous 12-bit coded word P (even parity).

30 Digital Circuits 30 When the word is read from memory If P = 0 (XOR of all bits includes parity bits), the parity is correct; P = 1, incorrect Four cases 1.If C = 0, P = 0, no error 2.If C 0, P = 1, a single error that can be corrected 3.If C 0, P = 0, a double error that is detected but cannot be corrected 4.If C = 0, P = 1, an error occurred in the P 13 bit
