2.4.2. ECC Parity Flip

The ECC parity flip feature dynamically flips the parity value generated in the encoder of M20K blocks to observe the ECC behavior through simulation.

When the ECC Encoder Bypass (eccencbypass) port is high, the built-in ECC encoder values are XOR-ed with the 8 parity bits through the parity ports to generate a new set of encoder value. When the ECC Encoder Bypass port is low, the encoder generates the parity bits according to the data input during a write process.

The following table shows an example to construct an 8-bit data width for the parity port.
