Refresh Reduction in Dynamic Memories by Aditya Agrawal Dissertation

Abstract

An effective approach to reduce the static energy consumption of large on-chip memories is to use a low-leakage technology such as embedded DRAM (eDRAM). Unfortunately, eDRAM, being a dynamic memory, requires periodic refresh, which ends up consuming substantial energy for large last-level caches. In upcoming architectures that stack a processor die and… (More)
