Abstract

The lack of accurate yet open to public simulation infrastructure has puzzled researchers in the memcomputing area for sometime. In this paper, we propose for the first time a full tool chain called MSim that supports the cycle-accurate microarchitecture level simulation for memcomputing studies. With MSim, the performance gains of utilizing memcomputing for arbitrary applications on user configurable computer system architectures can be evaluated in high accuracy. In addition, MSim provides flexible interfaces with pervasive object-oriented design, which makes it well-suited as a good base platform for researchers to explore new memcomputing technologies.
