There exist many embedded applications such as those executing on set-top boxes, wireless base stations, HDTV, and mobile handsets that are structured as nested loops and benefit significantly from a software managed memory. Prior work on Scratch-Pad Memories (SPMs) focused primarily on applications with regular data access patterns. Unfortunately, some embedded applications do not fit in this category and consequently conventional SPM management schemes will fail to produce the best results for them. In this paper, the authors propose a novel compilation strategy for data SPMs for embedded applications that exhibit irregular data access patterns.
