|Title:||Exploiting narrow values for energy efficiency in the register files of superscalar microprocessors||Authors:||Ergin, Oğuz||Keywords:||[No Keywords]||Issue Date:||2006||Publisher:||Springer-Verlag Berlin||Source:||16th International Workshop on Power and Timing Modeling, Optimization and Simulation -- SEP 13-15, 2006 -- Montpellier, FRANCE||Series/Report no.:||LECTURE NOTES IN COMPUTER SCIENCE||Abstract:||Register file is a hot spot in contemporary microprocessors. As the number of instructions present in the processor at a given time increases, the size of the register file increases and it becomes a more important source of power dissipation inside the processor. Therefore it is important to pursue techniques that reduce the energy dissipation of register files. In this paper we present a technique that exploits the narrowness of the produced and consumed values in order to reduce the dynamic energy dissipation of the register file. Our technique results in 20% energy reduction in the integer register file on average.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/20.500.11851/6687||ISBN:||3-540-39094-4||ISSN:||0302-9743|
