A method of updating a cache in an integrated circuit comprising: the cache; a processor connected to the cache via a cache bus; a memory interface connected to the cache via a first bus and to the processor via a second bus, the first bus being wider than the second bus or the cache bus; and memory connected to the memory interface via a memory bus; the method comprising the steps of: (a) following a cache miss, using the processor to issue a request for first data via a first address, the first data being that associated with the cache miss; (b) in response to the request, using the memory interface to fetch the first data from the memory, and sending the first data to the processor; (c) sending, from the memory interface and via the first bus, the first data and additional data, the additional data being that stored in the memory adjacent the first data; (d) updating the cache with the first data and the additional data via the first bus; and (e) updating flags in the cache associated with the first data and the additional data, such that the updated first data and additional data in the cache is valid.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
