Abstract:Sequential read-write memories (SRWMs) are RAMs without an address decoder. A shift register is used instead to point at subsequent memory locations. SRWMs consume less power than RAMs of the same size. Algorithms are presented to check whether a set of storage values fits in a single SRWM and to automatically map storage values in as few SRWMs as possible. Benchmark results show that good assignments can be obtained in spite of the limited addressing capabilities
