• DRAM-aware prefetching and cache management 

    Lee, Chang Joo, 1975- (2010-12)
    Main memory system performance is crucial for high performance microprocessors. Even though the peak bandwidth of main memory systems has increased through improvements in the microarchitecture of Dynamic Random Access ...
  • The feasibility of memory encryption and authentication 

    Owen, Donald Edward, Jr. (2013-05)
    This thesis presents an analysis of the implementation feasibility of RAM authentication and encryption. Past research as used simulations to establish that it is possible to authenticate and encrypt the contents of RAM ...
  • Mitigating DRAM complexities through coordinated scheduling policies 

    Stuecheli, Jeffrey Adam (2011-05)
    Contemporary DRAM systems have maintained impressive scaling by managing a careful balance between performance, power, and storage density. In achieving these goals, a significant sacrifice has been made in DRAM's operational ...
  • The use of memory state knowledge to improve computer memory system organization 

    Isen, Ciji (2011-05)
    The trends in virtualization as well as multi-core, multiprocessor environments have translated to a massive increase in the amount of main memory each individual system needs to be fitted with, so as to effectively ...
