Executive Summary

With rising capacities and higher accessing frequencies, high-performance DRAMs are providing increasing memory access bandwidth to the processors. However, the increasing DRAM performance comes with the price of higher power consumption and temperature in DRAM chips. Traditional low power approaches for DRAM systems focus on utilizing low power modes, which is not always suitable for high performance systems. Existing DRAM temperature management techniques, on the other hand, utilize generic temperature management methods inherited from those applied on processor cores.
