The memory system is a fundamental performance and energy bottleneck in almost all computing systems. Recent system design, application, and technology trends that require more capacity, bandwidth, efficiency, and predictability out of the memory system make it an even more important system bottleneck. Due to the continues increasing of leakage power in future Nano-scale technologies (22nm and smaller), energy and power consumption have become key design limits. Also, the memory system continues to be responsible for a significant fraction of overall system energy/power. Thus, designing new classes of memory modules and cache subsystem with the lower power consumption is essential in these days.
