Full-system timing-first simulation

  title={Full-system timing-first simulation},
  author={Carl J. Mauer and Mark D. Hill and David A. Wood},
Computer system designers often evaluate future design alternatives with detailed simulators that strive for functional fidelity (to execute relevant workloads) and performance fidelity (to rank design alternatives). Trends toward multi-threaded architectures, more complex micro-architectures, and richer workloads, make authoring detailed simulators increasingly difficult. To manage simulator complexity, this paper advocates decoupled simulator organizations that separate functional and… CONTINUE READING
