Book on Memory controllers for Mixed-Time-Criticality Systems
26, Jul, 2016
CISTER researcher Benny Åkesson has co-authored a book, Memory controllers for Mixed-Time-Criticality Systems - Architectures, Methodologies and Trade-offs. The book discusses the design and performance analysis of SDRAM controllers that cater to both real-time and best-effort applications. The authors describe the state of the art, an architecture template for reconfigurable memory controllers that addresses evolving set of SDRAM standards, in terms of worst-case timing and power analysis, as well as a prototype implementation in System C and synthesizable VHDL for an FPGA development board.
