LT-PIM: An LUT-based processing-in-DRAM architecture with RowHammer self-tracking

IEEE Computer Architecture Letters

Publication Type



Herein, we propose LT-PIM as a L ookup T able-based P rocessing- I n- M emory architecture leveraging the high density of DRAM to enable massively parallel and flexible computation. LT-PIM supports lookup table queries to execute complex arithmetic operations, such as multiplication via only memory read operation. In addition, LT-PIM enables bulk bit-wise in-memory logic by elevating the analog operation of the DRAM sub-array to implement Boolean functions between operands in the same bit-line. With this, LT-PIM enables a complete and inexpensive in-DRAM RowHammer (RH) self-tracking approach. Our results demonstrate that LT-PIM achieves ∼ 70% higher energy efficiency than the fastest charge-sharing-based designs and ∼ 32% over the best LUT-based designs. As for the RH self-tracking, with a worst-case slowdown of ∼ 0.2%, LT-PIM archives up to ∼ 80% energy-saving over the best designs.
