Microarchitecture evaluation with physical planning
Proceedings of the 40th conference on Design automation - DAC '03
Conventionally, microarchitecture designs are mainly guided by the maximum throughput (measured as IPC) and fail to evaluate the impact of architectural decisions on the physical design, and in particular, the impact on the interconnects. In this paper, we propose MEVA, a system to consider both IPC and cycle time in the design space search for a given microarchitectural design. MEVA can consider a variety of user-specified architectural alternatives that trade IPC and cycle time in the design,doi:10.1145/775832.775843 dblp:conf/dac/CongJRR03 fatcat:e6upnsvz3jepfiovzgv5qol2tu
