Rapidly evolving technology, increased internet speed and capacity, and the widespread use of mobile technologies have increased the demands for faster applications and less power consumption of modern electronic systems. In modern electronic systems, RAM is as effective as CPU in terms of performance and power consumption. Though DRAM is the most commonly used type of main memory at the present, it is being insufficient to meet the increasing demands. In order to overcome this problem, one of the topics studied is improving DRAM in terms of performance and power consumption. Another study to address this increasing demand is the development of hybrid main memory architectures. Hybrid Main Memory is one of the most recent studies on RAM.

In this research, we investigate hybrid main memory systems for a more efficient main memory architecture.  

Hızla gelişen teknoloji, artan internet hızı ve kapasitesi, mobil teknolojilerin yaygınlaşması ile birlikte, uygulamaların hızlı çalışması ve modern elektronik sistemlerin daha az güç tüketimi yönünde talepler artmıştır.  Modern elektronik sistemlerde RAM, performans ve güç tüketiminde konusunda CPU kadar etkili olmaktadır. Günümüzde en yaygın kullanılan ana bellek türü DRAM olmakla birlikte artan talepleri karşılaşmakta yetersiz kalmaya başlamıştır. Bu sorunun üstesinden gelebilmek için, DRAM’in performans ve güç tüketimi açısından geliştirilmesi üzerinde çalışılan konulardan biridir. Bu artan talebi karşılamaya yönelik diğer bir çalışma ise hybrid ana bellek mimarilerinin geliştirilmesi yönündedir. Hybrid Main Memory, RAM üzerine yapılan en güncel çalışmalardandır.

Bu araştırmada, daha verimli bir ana bellek mimarisi için hybrid ana bellek sistemleri incelenmiştir.
