NBTI-Aware Data Allocation in Scratchpad Memories


This project investigates the use of hardware-software management techniques for memory allocation to reduce aging effect in processor memory structures.  In particular, we have chosen to focus on scratchpad memories for this project since memory allocation decisions can be controlled by the software; thereby requiring limited modifications to existing hardware. Our initial results show an improvement in again effects while still reducing leakage power of the memory system.
