Memory Data Organization for Low-Energy Address Buses

HANDLE Web Site Open Access


Energy consumption has become one of the most critical constraints in the design of portable multimedia systems. For media applications, address buses between processor and data memory consume a considerable amount of energy due to their large capacitance and frequent accesses. This paper studies impacts of memory data organization on the address bus energy. Our experiments show that the address bus activity is significantly reduced by 50% through exploring memory data organization and encoding address buses.
