<p>The organization of interleaved memories in such a way that faults in the memory system degrade the performance in a graceful manner is studied. Attention is restricted to an interleaved memory system that starts out with 2/sup q/ memory banks and uses a low-order interleaving scheme. The motivation and design objectives of the memory system are described. A new reconfiguration scheme and the design of the hardware needed to implement it are presented. The reconfiguration scheme is evaluated using trace-driven simulation for a number of benchmarks. The ideas presented can easily be extended to other interleaved memory schemes.</p>
