[‚məl·tə′prä‚ses·ər ‚in·tər′lēv·iŋ]
(computer science)
Technique used to speed up processing time; by splitting banks of memory each with x microseconds access time and accessing each one in sequence 1/ n-th of a cycle later, a reference to memory can be had every x/n microseconds; this speed is achieved at the cost of hardware complexity.
