Scratch-Pad Memory (SPM) allocators that exploit the presence of affine references to arrays are important for scientific benchmarks. On the other hand, such allocators have so far been limited in their general applicability. In this paper, the authors propose an integrated scheme that for the first time combines the specialized solution for affine program allocation with a general framework for other code. They find that their integrated framework does as well or outperforms other allocators for a variety of SPM sizes.
