ABSTRACT
The article offers information on several options available for system designers to include non-volatile memory (NVM) in portable designs. It states NVM can be used for code storage, digital rights management (DRM), configuration settings, device/vendor IDs and performance tracking. It notes that there are number of options to embed NVM in portable designs. It suggests that the important key in selecting the right NVM solution is to understand the basics about the application requirements and the NVM capabilities. A list of the most common NVM options for portable devices is provided. It also outlines the advantages and disadvantages of each technology option.

    When a program is loaded into memory for execution the relative position of its basic blocks is crucial, since loading basic blocks that are unlikely to be executed first places them high in the instruction-memory hierarchy only to be dislodged as the execution goes on. In this paper, we study...
