Memory and disk technologies change rapidly. In our experience, the best sources of technical information are the Web pages maintained by the manufacturers. Companies such as Micron, Toshiba, Hyundai, Samsung, Hitachi, and Kingston Technology provide a wealth of current technical information on memory devices. The pages for IBM, Maxtor, and Seagate provide similarly useful information about disks. Textbooks on circuit and logic design provide detailed information about memory technology [36, 58]. IEEE Spectrum published a series of survey articles on DRAM . The International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA) is a common forum for characterizations of DRAM memory performance [20, 21]. Wilkes wrote the ﬁrst paper on cache memories . Smith wrote a classic survey . Przybylski wrote an authoritative book on cache design . Hennessy and Patterson provide a comprehensive discussion of cache design issues . Stricker introduced the idea...
