Reducing Leakage through Filter Cache

Abstract

We evaluate the leakage reduction for both instruction and data cache in presence of drowsy or decay techniques. We discovered that a filter cache,traditionally used for reducing active power, can help reduce also leakage. The key idea is to reduce the lifetime of the lines that are in high-power state inside a leakage-saving cache. Power consumption has… (More)
