The importance of L1 data caches makes their performance, power consumption, and data integrity characteristics extremely critical in embedded systems design. We examine these issues in the context of a mechanism that tries to enhance data cache reliability by replicating cache lines (blocks) in active use. When replicating data cache lines, it is important… CONTINUE READING
