Embedded C interview Questions - features supported in processor w.r.t. Virtual memory

Embedded C interview question

What are the features supported in processor w.r.t. Virtual memory ?

Paging is supported by the Virtual memory For example; a virtual 1-megabyte address space can be simulated with 64K of RAM, a 2-megabyte disk, and paging hardware. The paging hardware translates all memory accesses through a page table. If the page that contains the memory access is not loaded into memory a fault is generated which results in the least used page being written to disk and the desired page being read from disk and loaded into memory over the least used page.
