In this paper, we present a novel HitME (Hit-MEmory) buffer to reduce the energy consumption of memory hierarchy in embedded processors. The HitME buffer is a small direct-mapped cache memory that is added as additional memory into existing cache memory hierarchies. The HitME buffer is loaded only when there is a hit on L1 cache. Otherwise, L1 cache is updated from the memory and the processor's memory request is served directly from the L1 cache. The strategy works due to the fact that 90% of… CONTINUE READING
