Multiprocessor system-on-chip data reuse analysis for exploring customized memory hierarchies
The increasing use of Multiprocessor Systems-on-Chip (MPSoCs) for high performance demands of embedded applications results in high power dissipation. The memory subsystem is a large and critical contributor to both energy and performance, requiring system designers to perform exploration of low power memory organizations. In this paper we present a novel multiprocessor data reuse analysis technique that allows the system designer to explore a wide range of customized memory hierarchy organizations with different size and energy profiles. Our technique enables the system designer to explore feasible memory subsystem solutions that meet power and area constraints while maintaining the necessary performance level. Our experiments on the complex QSDPCM benchmark illustrate the exploration of a wide range of customized memory hierarchies for an MPSoC implementation.
