As far as I know, FMT is not a commonly used abbreviation (unlike MCU, IP, MMU, DMIPS, MHz, DSP, SIMD, RAM or even SPRAM [had to think a bit before realizing from context it mean ScratchPad RAM]). Just expanding "FMTs" to "Fixed Memory Translation tables" would have helped. (From context I am guessing that TLM MMU is referring to an MMU for translating virtual physical addresses to actual physical addresses, but I could be wrong.)
