Using software-controlled Scratch-Pad Memory (SPM) in Systems-on-Chip has the potential of reducing power consumption by using design-time application knowledge to reduce memory accesses and processor stalls. This paper presents a fully automatic application analysis and transformation tool which selects data-structures for transfer to the SPM and schedules data transfers between background memory and SPM (pre-fetching) to achieve both high performance and low power consumption. A case study… CONTINUE READING
