Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(PB Cache) A synchronous cache built from pipelined sram.

A cache in which reading or writing a new location takes multiple cycles but subsequent locations can be accessed in a single cycle. On pentium systems in 1996, pipeline burst caches are frequently used as secondary caches. The first 8 bytes of data are transferred in 3 cpu cycles, and the next 3 8-byte pieces of data are transferred in one cycle each.
