Interleaving is a process or methodology to make a system more efficient, fast and reliable by arranging data in a noncontiguous manner. There are many uses for interleaving at the system level, including:
Interleaving is also known as sector interleave.
Interleaving divides memory into small chunks. It is used as a high-level technique to solve memory issues for motherboards and chips. By increasing bandwidth so data can access chunks of memory, the overall performance of the processor and system increases. This is because the processor can fetch and send more data to and from memory in the same amount of time.
Interleaving is the only technique supported by all kinds of motherboards. High-level processing management systems are constantly required to implement such techniques. Interleaving promotes efficient database and communication for servers in large organizations.
There are various types of interleaving:
Latency is one disadvantage of interleaving. Interleaving takes time and hides all kinds of error structures, which are not efficient.
