A Cache Energy Optimization Technique for STT-RAM Last Level Cache

Last level caches (LLCs) occupy a large chip-area and there size is expected to grow further to offset the limitations of memory bandwidth and speed. Due to high leakage consumption of SRAM device, caches designed with SRAM consume large amount of energy. To address this, use of emerging technologies such as spin torque transfer RAM (STT-RAM) has been… CONTINUE READING
