Flash memories are a type of non-volatile memory based on floating-gate transistors. The use of commodity and embedded flash memories are growing rapidly as we enter the system-on-chip (SOC) era. Conventional tests for flash memories are usually ad hoc—the test procedure is developed for a specific design. We propose improved March-like algorithms (i.e.,(More)

DRAM renovation calls for a holistic architecture exploration to cope with bandwidth growth and latency reduction need. In this paper, we present DRAM area power timing (DArT), a DRAM area, power, and timing modeling tool, for array assembly and interface customization. Through proper design abstraction, our component-based modeling approach provides(More)
The integrated CPU/GPU architecture brings performance advantage since the communication cost between the CPU and GPU is reduced, and also imposes new challenges in processor architecture design, especially in the management of shared memory resources, e.g, the last-level cache and memory bandwidth. Therefore, a micro-architecture level simulator is(More)
We present a simulator for evaluating the redundancy analysis (RA) algorithms. The simulator can calculate the repair rate (the ratio of the number of repaired memories to the number of defective memories) of the given RA algorithm and the associated memory configuration and redundancy structure. With the tool, the user also can easily assess and plan the(More)
Embedded memories are among the most widely used cores in current system-on-chip (SOC) implementations. Memory cores usually occupy a significant portion of the chip area, and dominate the manufacturing yield of the chip. Efficient yield-enhancement techniques for embedded memories thus are important for SOC. In this paper we present a built-in self-repair(More)
