Adaptive Scratch Pad Memory Management for Dynamic Behavior of Multimedia Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Exploiting runtime memory access traces can be a complementary approach to compiler optimizations for the energy reduction in memory hierarchy. This is particularly important for emerging multimedia applications since they usually have input-sensitive runtime behavior which results in dynamic and/or irregular memory access patterns. These types of applications are normally hard to optimize by static compiler optimizations. The reason is that their behavior stays unknown until runtime and may even change during computation.
