14.5.2. Bit-band accesses

Accesses to the bit-band alias region are converted into accesses to the bit-band region. Bit-band writes take two cycles, they are converted into read-modify-write operations, and so bit-band write accesses stall any subsequent accesses until the bit-band access has completed. For a description of bit-band accesses, see Bit-band accesses.
