Open-source simulator release for emerging memory technologies

We are happy to announce the open source release of the AXLE simulation infrastructure for emerging memory technologies. The platform integrates a complete architectural simulator, with an accurate main memory simulator that allows modeling of 3D stacked and non-volatile memory architectures.

The simulator has been tested extensively with single and multi process database management system workloads as well as the SPEC CPU2006 benchmark suite. The code is publicly available at the project’s github site.
