Sampling Dead Block Prediction for Last-Level Caches
Last-level caches (LLCs) are large structures with significant power requirements. They can be quite inefficient. On average, a cache block in a 2MB LRU-managed LLC is dead 86% of ...

Pseudo-LIFO: the foundation of a new family of replacement policies for last-level caches
Cache blocks often exhibit a small number of uses during their life time in the last-level cache. Past research has exploited this property in two different ways. First, replacem...

Using Trace Scratchpads to Reduce Execution Times in Predictable Real-Time Architectures
Instruction scratchpads have been previously suggested as a way to reduce the worst case execution time (WCET) of hard real-time programs without introducing the analysis issues p...
