Fast and Accurate DRAM Power and Energy Estimation for DRAM
TU Eindhoven, TU Delft, TU Kaiserslautern

DRAMPower is an open source tool for fast and accurate DRAM power and energy estimation for DRAM memories [1]. The latest version of the tool is v4.0 and features many important improvements, such as significantly improved analysis speed (at least 10x), enabling analysis of much larger traces, as well as support for DDR2/DDR3, LPDDR/LPDDR2, DDR4 and Wide I/O memories. The tool is based on the DRAM power model developed jointly by the Computer Engineering Research Group at TU Delft and the Electronic Systems Group at TU Eindhoven and has been verified by the Microelectronic System Design Research Group at TU Kaiserslautern with equivalent circuit-level simulations, which established that the error of the tool to be < 2% for all memory operations of any granularity for all memories supported by DRAMPower. DRAMPower is also part of the computer architecture simulator gem5.
