URFA-Update based register file architecture with partial register write for energy efficiency
In modern architectures the register file is one of the most energy consuming and frequently used components of the processor. Therefore, reducing the register file power dissipation is critical. In this paper, we propose ...
Error Recovery Through Partial Value Similarity
Soft errors arose as a critical problem for microprocessor designers due to shrinking feature sizes and increasing clock rates. Many attempts appeared to protect the register file which is the main storage component in ...
Exploiting Existing Copies in Register File for Soft Error Correction
(IEEE Computer Soc., 2016-01)
Soft errors are an increasingly important problem in contemporary digital systems. Being the major data holding component in contemporary microprocessors, the register file has been an important part of the processor on ...
ChargeCache: Reducing DRAM Latency by Exploiting Row Access Locality
DRAM latency continues to be a critical bottleneck for system performance. In this work, we develop a low-cost mechanism, called ChargeCache, that enables faster access to recently-accessed rows in DRAM, with no modifications ...
