To prevent an attacker from inferring anything from sequences of memory access, every time Ascend accesses a particular memory address, it randomly swaps that address with one stored somewhere else in the tree.
For example, although the hierarchical model of bilingual memory (Dufour & Kroll, 1995) grants E1 dominant memory access, denying L2 equitable access until it reaches L1 proficiency levels, a more recent model (DeGroot & Poot, 1997) grants L2 comparable memory access from the early stages of its development.
Unlike the earlier-generation processing technologies that have been used up to this point, an efficient SNAP design is optimized for processing TCP/IP and ULPs like iSCSI, Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA).
Model DHS110 XEL also includes menu selection of settable High/Low alarms, adjustable emissivity, and memory access to the last recording observed.
This results in a faster memory access than getting the data from main memory.
One reader features a new and unique industrial design and is fully compatible with two new flash card interface standards: Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) CompactFlash([R]), a high-performance flash memory protocol based on the CompactFlash form factor, and Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC[TM]), a memory standard that supports capacities of 4GB and higher in the Secure Digital (SD[TM]) form factor.
11 medium access controller (MAC) enhancements, the Am1772 wireless chipset is a Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) solution that utilizes baseband processor and a MAC, with a descriptor-based direct memory access (DMA) host interface.
Parallel databases, including Oracle Parallel Server, IBM DB2 UDB EEE, and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 were early adopters of VI, exploiting the benefits of direct memory access.
The on-chip direct memory access (DMA) controller can then be used to transfer large volumes of data at high-speeds without imposing a load on the CPU.
These distributed shared memory systems are based on the company's NUMA 3 architecture, a third-generation non-uniform memory access technology.
As a single chip solution that integrates all necessary hardware to implement IrDA, the ASDL-7021 also includes an on-chip buffer memory and direct memory access (DMA) that enables it to access peripheral IO and memory from its system bus.
It uses single-clock memory access and an architecture that optimizes execution time to perform operations up to six times faster than a traditional '186 running at the same clock frequency.
