The authors study the tolerance of defects faults in cache memories. They argue that, even though the major components of a cache are linear RAMs (random-access memories), traditional techniques used for fault/defect tolerance in RAMs may be neither appropriate nor necessary for cache memories. They suggest a scheme that allows a cache to continue operation in the presence of defective/faulty b
