The processor-to-memory communication on system-level buses dissipates a significant amount of the overall power in microprocessor-based architectures. A methodology has been set up to evaluate the effects of both encoding schemes and multi-level cache memories on the power consumption associated with the system-level address and data buses of a high-end computer system based on the PowerPC604e architecture. The main goal is to evaluate how different values of cache parameters (cache size, block size, associativity write strategy, and block replacement policy) and the introduction of bus encoding techniques, at the different levels of the memory hierarchy, affect the system-level power dissipation
