Abstract
In this paper, we present APMC, the Advanced Pattern based Memory Controller, that uses descriptors to support both regular and irregular memory access patterns without using a master core. It keeps pattern descriptors in memory and prefetches the complex 1D/2D/3D data structure into its special scratchpad memory. Support for irregular Memory accesses are arranged in the pattern descriptors at program-time and APMC manages multiple patterns at run-time to reduce access latency. The proposed APMC...
