About this book


This book explores the design implications of emerging, non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies on future computer memory hierarchy architecture designs. Since NVM technologies combine the speed of SRAM, the density of DRAM, and the non-volatility of Flash memory, they are very attractive as the basis for future universal memories. This book provides a holistic perspective on the topic, covering modeling, design, architecture and applications. The practical information included in this book will enable designers to exploit emerging memory technologies to improve significantly the performance/power/reliability of future, mainstream integrated circuits.

• Provides a comprehensive reference on designing modern circuits with emerging, non-volatile memory technologies, such as MRAM and PCRAM;
• Explores new design opportunities offered by emerging memory technologies, from a holistic perspective;
• Describes topics in technology, modeling, architecture and applications;
• Enables circuit designers to exploit emerging memory technologies to improve significantly the performance/power/reliability of future computing systems.
