Scratch-Pad Memories (SPMs) have been increasingly used in embedded systems, for which it is important to reduce the leakage energy consumption. While there are several techniques to reduce the leakage energy for cache memories, those techniques may result in significant performance overheads for instruction SPMs. In this paper, we study a compiler-based… CONTINUE READING
