Customizing a memory hierarchy to a particular application or applications is becoming increasingly common in embedded system design, with one benefit being reduced energy. Adding a victim buffer to the memory hierarchy is known to reduce energy and improve performance on average, yet victim buffers are not typically found in commercial embeddedprocessors. One problem with such buffers is, while they work well on average, they tend to hurt performance for many applications. We show that a… CONTINUE READING
