execute in place (memory) (XIP)
Execute in Place (XIP) is a method where programs stored on memory cards can be started and executed directly without loading them into memory.
Execute in Place (XIP) is an extension of Shared Memory, where the required memory space is reduced. Execute-in-place operation saves memory space in the main memory on the one hand, and on the other hand program execution is significantly accelerated because the program is no longer copied into the main memory. The XIP method bypasses the operating system and achieves an increase in performance.
