Deep-submicron designs have to take care of process variation effects as variations in critical process parameters result in large variations in access latencies of hardware components. This is severe in the case of memory components as minimum sized transistors are used in their design. In this work, by considering on-chip data caches, we study the effect of access latency variations on performance. We discuss performance losses due to the worst-case design, wherein the entire cache operates… CONTINUE READING
