The memory team congratulates Gervin Thomas from TU Berlin for having his paper entitled “A Predictor-based Power-Saving Policy for DRAM Memories” accepted at DSD 2012. This work is the result of Gervin’s HiPEAC collaboration visit in Eindhoven between August and October 2011. During this time, he worked closely with Karthik Chandrasekar on finding a way to use the self-refresh mode of DRAMs to reduce the power consumption in soft real-time systems without significantly reducing performance. The camera-ready version of the paper will be available shortly.
Update: The paper is now available online. Click here to read it.
