Abstract: front page image
(EN)

A computer-implemented method including receiving a set of data having a mapping. The set of data has groups of subsets of data. The mapping describes in what order the groups of subsets of data are to be stored in a memory. The mapping also describes the offsets of the groups of subsets of data in the memory. The mapping is not changed when the set of data is stored in the memory. The method also includes determining a starting address for the set of data. The starting address corresponds to an address in the memory. The starting address is determined such that an optimum number of subsets of data in the groups of subsets of data are aligned. The method also includes storing the set of data in the memory, wherein the mapping is unaffected when the set of data is stored in the memory.
