Forms of automatic retry routines

Automatic retry enables electronic error correction in several situations. It is particularly valuable in the CPU, which is subject to transient error. Transient error, such as a data parity error, may occur because of temporary conditions such as static electricity or random variations in switching times. Since it is likely that such a condition will disappear on its own accord; a simple activity repeat or retry will commonly eliminate the indicted error.
