(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.

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.
