6.3. Noncached Thumb instruction fetches

Thumb instruction fetches are performed as 32-bit accesses on the AHB interface. To minimize bus loading, AHB transfers are only performed for nonsequential addresses and for sequential addresses that cross a word boundary. The word returned from main memory is latched so that both halfwords are available for the processor core.
