Abstract: Multi-core architectures consisting of multiple processing cores on a chip have become increasingly prevalent. Synthesizing hard realtime applications onto these platforms is quite challenging, as the contention among the cores for various shared resources leads to inherent timing unpredictability. This paper proposes the use of shared cache in a predictable manner through a combination of locking and partitioning mechanisms. We explore possible design choices and evaluate their effects on the worst-case application performance. Our study reveals certain design principles that strongly dictate the performance of a predictable memory hierarchy. Copyright 2008 ACM.
