Bank management logic in the MCB allows up to eight memory banks to be open simultaneously, allowing the controller to maintain high efficiency levels when accessing data spread across multiple banks. In addition, read and write requests to the memory can include an optional auto-precharge to automatically close a bank upon completion of the transaction to improve the efficiency of random data accesses within a bank. The MCB does not perform any reordering of transactions.
