1.1. About the ARM L210 MBIST Controller

MBIST is the industry-standard method of testing embedded memories. MBIST works by performing sequences of reads and writes to the memory according to a test algorithm. Many industry-standard test algorithms exist.

An MBIST controller generates the correct sequence of reads and writes. The ARM L210 MBIST Controller is for use with the ARM L210 to perform memory testing of the level-2 cache RAM.

Note

This implementation of the ARM L210 MBIST Controller supports only 8-way cache designs.
