ARM has established itself as the ‘architecture of the digital world’; if it is a low-power system on chip it most likely has at least one ARM IP on it. As ARM ’s Research Group, our mission is to investigate emerging technologies, demonstrate promising ideas to create a pipeline for future ARM products, align with partners to create future use-cases and make ARM the choice of architecture for the academic world.

Computer architects depend on simulation tools for design-space exploration and for prototyping new ideas. The advantages of trace-driven simulation are shorter run-times and portability of traces to other simulation frameworks. However, it is challenging to replicate complex interactions between modern out-of-order cores and the memory using trace-driven approaches. My research project is about a trace-driven simulation technique that accurately captures application dependencies and relative delays that are specific to a processor microarchitecture. Our trace-driven model adapts execution time to memory system changes as would the actual CPU , which allows us to evaluate different memory system topologies, memory controller designs, and new cache and interconnect designs.

In this talk, I will give an overview of ARM , ARM’s Research Group and my research project. I will also briefly cover the CSR and outreach activities at ARM , and my own thoughts and experiences as a woman engineer in a male-dominated work place.

Bio: Radhika Jagtap received her Bachelor of Technology from the College of Engineering Pune, India and Master of Science in Microelectronics from Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. She has worked for the IBM Systems and Technology Lab, India and for the last three years has been working as an engineer/researcher at ARM ’s Research Group in Cambridge. She is interested in computer architecture, memories and interconnect.
