The processor provides error checking and correction (ECC) data hardware.

The ECC bits are computed on 32-bit data sets; they are computed and then stored in memory with the data. When the data is accessed, the hardware can detect one and two-bit errors within the 32-bit data and its ECC bits. The hardware detects all two-bit errors and can correct single-bit errors, which is sometimes referred to as a single-error correction, double-error detection (SEC-DED) ECC scheme.
