This paper evaluates the energy efficiency of STT-MRAMs based on double-barrier MTJs (DMTJs) as compared to conventional single-barrier MTJ (SMTJ) - based solutions. Our comparative study exploits a cross-layer simulation framework, which spreads from device-up to the architecture-level for different cache sizes. Owing to the reduced switching current, DMTJ-based STT-MRAMs prove to be credible candidates for next-generation non-volatile cache memories.

Abstract

This paper evaluates the energy efficiency of STT-MRAMs based on double-barrier MTJs (DMTJs) as compared to conventional single-barrier MTJ (SMTJ) - based solutions. Our comparative study exploits a cross-layer simulation framework, which spreads from device-up to the architecture-level for different cache sizes. Owing to the reduced switching current, DMTJ-based STT-MRAMs prove to be credible candidates for next-generation non-volatile cache memories.
