ABSTRACT
A new dynamic cache resizing scheme for low-power CAM-
tag caches is introduced. A control algorithm that is only
activated on cache misses uses a duplicate set of tags, the
miss tags, to minimize active cache size while sustaining
close to the same hit rate as a full size cache. The cache
partitioning mechanism saves both switching and leakage
energy in unused partitions with little impact on cycle time.
Simulation results show that the scheme saves 28­56% of
