SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ADDRESSING A CACHE WITH SPLIT – INDEXES

Cache memory mapping techniques are presented. A cache may contain an index configuration register. The register may configure the locations of an upper index portion and a lower index portion of a memory address. The portions may be combined to create a combined index. The configurable split-index addressing structure may be used, among other applications, to reduce the rate of cache conflicts occurring between multiple processors decoding the video frame in parallel.
