In the project of low power processor design, we design both thermal aware and energy efficient RAM design on FPGA in this paper. This energy efficient and thermal aware RAM will be integrated in processor in order to make energy efficient and thermal aware processor. In order to test the compatibility of this design with the latest processor of i7 family, we operated this RAM with the highest frequencies supported by i7 processor. This RAM is thermal aware because it is able to operate without

This RAM is energy efficient because it is able to operate with less power without any compromise with performance and functionality of RAM. There are 74.54% reduction in clock power, 75.36% reduction in I/O power, 0.42% reduction in leakage power and 11.74% reduction in leakage power in special case of no peak demand of high performance (4GHz).
