Abstract: Tile-based data layout has been applied to achieve various objectives such as minimizing cache conflicts and memory row switching activity. In some applications of tilebased mapping, the size of the tile can be assumed to be a power of two. In this paper, this 'power of two' assumption has been used to drastically simplify the tile-based address mapping functions. Once optimized, the implementation of the non-linear tile-based mapping consumes 60% less power than the implementation of the linear row-major map…
