Park, "Dynamic base register caching: a technique for reducing address bus width," in Proceedings of the 18th International Symposium on Computer Architecture, pp.
The maximum quantity of external memory that can be addressed using a 16-bit address bus is 64KB.
"If a microprocessor has an intermittent problem that sends the CPU off to a block of memory, you monitor the address bus and trigger only when an address appears within that block's span.
For example, here is a one-state trigger program containing a single event that tests the Address bus for a value and a single action that triggers the logic analyzer:
The microcontroller has an 8-bit data bus and a 16-bit address bus for addressing 64KB of external memory.
You want to see what happens, but only after the system receives an interrupt request and then only after 56 clock cycles, but only if a specific 16-bit pattern appeared on a multiplexed address bus during that 56-clock-cycle period.
