Caches play an important role in embedded systems to bridge the performance gap between fast processor and slow memory. And prefetching mechanisms are proposed to further improve the cache performance. While in real-time systems, the application of caches complicates the Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) analysis due to its unpredictable behavior. Modern(More)
— Software architecture simulators are indispensable tools in modern processor design. According to the granularity of simulation, they can be classified into the fast functional simulation and the slow detailed one. The detailed simulator takes far longer time than the functional simulator when simulating the same workload. Based on the duration difference(More)
