This paper shows that even very small reconfigurable data caches, when split to serve data streams exhibiting temporal and spatial localities, can improve performance of embedded applications without consuming excessive silicon real estate or power. It also shows that neither higher set-associativities nor large block sizes are necessary with reconfigurable split cache organizations. We use benchmark programs from the MiBench suite to show that our cache organization outperforms an 8k unifieddoi:10.1145/1244002.1244160 dblp:conf/sac/NazKOF07 fatcat:kkwrktmdwfd2fhe6fhman4vrty
