Claim of US Patent No. 10,509,628

1. A first-in, first-out (FIFO) memory device having a first number of data storage units, the FIFO memory device comprising:a plurality of internal FIFO memories equal in number to a second number, each internal FIFO memory in the plurality of internal FIFO memories having a third number of internal data storage units in individual storage locations, the first number, which enumerates quantity of data storage units, being a product of the second number and the third number;
a fourth number of data inputs configured to receive input data units in an order of receipt; and
input multiplexer circuitry for selectively connecting each one of the data inputs to any one of the internal FIFO memories, to direct respective ones of the input data units, received on the data inputs, in round-robin fashion for storage as stored data units, in the order of receipt, in a first layer of the FIFO memory device defined by corresponding ones of the individual storage locations distributed across respective different ones of the internal FIFO memories.
