Example text

The Advantage of a Level 2 Cache Some 486 systems use two levels of cache to improve overall system performance. The internal, or level one (L1), cache provides the processor with the most often used code and data, while the level two (L2) cache provides the processor with code and data that the L1 cache was too small to retain. Since all information destined for the internal L1 cache must pass through the external L2 cache, the advantage of the L2 cache may not be immediately apparent. If the L2 cache were the same size as the L1 cache (8KB), there would be no advantage.

See explanation of DP0. Data Parity Check. See explanation for DP0. 25 80486 System Architecture Bus Cycle Definition Table 3-5 describes the 80486 outputs used to define the type of bus cycle in progress. Table 3-5. Bus Cycle Definition Signals Signal I/O Description LOCK# O PLOCK# O M/IO# O D/C# O 26 LOCK# is automatically generated by the 80486 when it is executing an instruction that performs a memory read immediately followed by a memory write. This includes updates to segment descriptor, page directory and page table entries, and execution of the XCHG instruction when one of the operands is memorybased.

When the microprocessor attempts to access a memory location that isn't cached in the internal cache, an external memory access would be initiated. If the microprocessor had previously accessed the same area of memory, there is a high probability that it will be found in the L2 cache and can be burst back to the microprocessor. Only when a read miss occurs in both the internal and L2 caches would an access to the slow DRAM main memory become necessary. The 486 with an L2 Look-Through Cache Figure 4-1 illustrates the relationship of the 80486, the Non-Cacheable Access (NCA) logic, a look-through external (L2) cache, system board memory, and devices that connect to the expansion bus (for example, ISA, MCA or EISA).
