Low-Energy Encoding for Deep-Submicron Address Buses

  title={Low-Energy Encoding for Deep-Submicron Address Buses},
  author={Luca Macchiarulo and Enrico Macii and Massimo Poncino},
In this paper, we introduce a new encoding scheme that explicitly targets the minimization of the bus energy due to the crosstalk capacitances between adjacent bus lines. The key transformation operated by the code consists of a permutation of the bus lines, implemented directly during physical design; as a desirable consequence, no additional encoding/decoding logic is required at the bus boundaries, thus implying that no latency penalty is introduced on the processor-memory path.
