Efficient Energy and Power Consumption of 3-D Chip Multiprocessor with NUCA Architecture


Objective: Technology trend are one of the most important to use the bulky on-chip memories such as level-2 (L2) and level-3 (L3) cache. In this paper, Non-Uniform Cache access Architectures (NUCA) has been used in order to decrease the effects of the high access latencies. For the systems which operate at high frequency, the latencies of such caches are conquered by wire delays. Methods: In this architecture, several banks are partitioned and which is connected to the controller through switches and links. This larger cache memory increases overall wire delays across the chip due to very bulky latencies. The majority of the access time will not absorb them self and that occupy in the routing to and from the several banks. The predictable lower-level caches have the best ever access time among the entire the sub arrays, although such uniform cache access don’t make the use of differences in latencies of the entire sub arrays. Findings: Hence there is a necessitate for non-uniform cache architectures where the cache memories is broken down into several banks that can be analyzed at dissimilar latencies and resulting in diminish of energy and power consumption. Applications/ Improvements: An experimental result shows the comparison of NUCA and UCA using SRAM/MRAM in terms of power and energy
