Memory Cashe Simulation

Memory Cashe Simulation

This animation demonstrates cache associativity. THe applet has a diagram of a simple cache, with the CPU at the top, the cache in the middle and the main memory at the bottom. The cache consists of a controler and eight cache frames, each frame can hold a piece of data from memory, with an associated address tag. It demostrates that the associativity controls how the cache controller probes the cache frames.
