In computer engineering, the creation and development of the pipeline burst cache memory is an integral part in the development of the superscalar architecture. It was introduced in the mid 1990's as a replacement for the Synchronous Burst Cache and the Asynchronous Cache and is still in use till date in computers. It basically increases the speed of the operation of the cache memory by minimizing the wait states and hence the processor computing speed. Implementing the techniques of pipelining and bursting, high performance computing is assured. It works on the principle of parallelism, the very principle on which the development of superscalar architecture rests. Pipeline burst cache can be found in DRAM controllers and chipset designs.

Famous quotes containing the words pipeline and/or burst:
“Even in the pink crib
the somehow deficient,
the somehow maimed,
are thought to have
a special pipeline to the mystical....”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“We, the lineal representatives of the successful enactors of one scene of slaughter after another, must, whatever more pacific virtues we may also possess, still carry about with us, ready at any moment to burst into flame, the smoldering and sinister traits of character by means of which they lived through so many massacres, harming others, but themselves unharmed.”
—William James (18421910)
