Cache memories in embedded systems play an important role in reducing the execution time of the applications. Various kinds of extensions have been added to cache hardware to enable software involvement in replacement decisions, thus improving the run-time over a purely hardware-managed cache. Novel embedded systems, like Intel's Xscale and ARM Cortex processors provide the facility of locking one or more lines in cache - this feature is called cache locking.
