AN EFFICIENT ALGORITHM FOR A CACHE COMPRESSION AND DECOMPRESSION TO IMPROVE SYSTEM MEMORY PERFORMANCE
K Janaki P Vijayakumar
Speed is the challenging issue for any electronic component. Memory access time is dependent on speed of the microprocessor. Access time is more in the off-chip memory than on-chip memory. In order to increase the speed, cache memory compression technique is found by microprocessor system designers, as it increases the cache capacity and off-chip bandwidth. Performance of the processor, power consumption and area were assumed in previous work on cache compression. A lossless cache compression algorithm is proposed and designed for high performance processor. This technique allows Parallel compression of multiple words using dictionary mode. Compression ratio is not degraded in the performance
