The Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) has expanded its role from an accelerator for rendering graphics into an efficient parallel processor for general purpose computing. The GPU, an indispensable component in desktop and server-class computers as well as game consoles, has also become an integrated component in handheld devices, such as smartphones. Since the(More)
Distributed scratchpad memories (SPM) in embedded many-core systems require careful selection of data placement such that good performance can be achieved. In this paper, we propose SPMPool to share the available on-chip scratchpads on many-cores among executing applications in order to reduce the overall memory access latency. By pooling SPM resources, we(More)
