A Low Power Highly Associative Cache for Embedded Systems
—Reducing energy consumption is an important issue for battery powered embedded computing systems. Content Addressable Memory (CAM)-based Highly-Associative Caches (HAC) are widely used in low power embedded microprocessors. The CAM tag is costly in power, access time, and area. We have designed a Low Power Highly Associative Cache (LPHAC) whose tag is partially implemented by using CAM, while the remaining tag is implemented by using SRAM. The experimental results from 10 MediaBench and all 26 SPEC2K benchmarks show the proposed LPHAC exhibits almost the identical miss rate as a traditional HAC. At the same time, it consumes 27% less per
