The increasing number of multimedia applications for embedded systems shows designers the limits of classical memory systems when dealing with large vectors of data. Therefore, a new type of cache memory specifically targeted for processing arrays and large sets of data has been proposed. In order to justify a new cache memory architecture, two assessments are needed: an evaluation of the performance gain for specific code, and an indication of the modifications required in the software. This work presents theory and implementation details for a memory access analysis tool that enables evaluation of vector operations of particular software and identification of code segments that generate them. The tool has been developed assuming a MIPS 3000 microprocessor target system, and its capabilities have been benchmarked on execution traces from two multimedia software applications: djpeg image conversion and rawaudio audio file compression
