In a memory system with skewing reconfiguration, a virtual memory address is encoded by an address encoder to avoid using a faulty memory area. This correspondence shows one method to improve the reliability of the address encoder by encoding a virtual memory address together with data to an error correcting code. Only a few additional gates are required for the implementation if the memory system has already employed an error correcting code.
