The process of organizing the memory into two banks to allow 8 and 16-bit data operation is called two-way memory interleaving.
Interleaved memoryis a design made to compensate for the relatively slow speed of dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) or core memory, by spreading memory addresses evenly across memory banks. That way, contiguous memory reads and writes are using each memory bank in turn, resulting in higher memory throughputs due to reduced waiting for memory banks to become ready for desired operations.
Two-way interleaving:- Two memory blocks are accessed at same level for reading and writing operations. The chance for overlapping exists.
