<标题>Homework #4 (Pseudo-Associative Cache)

(Due: Beginning of class on 4/17/2015)

Objective

This project is to help you understand how pseudo-associative (column-associative) cache works. You

will initially analyze the sensitivity of L1 caches to changes in parameters. Then you are to implement L1

data cache as pseudo-associative in SimpleScalar and compare its performance to the normal direct-
mapped L1 data cache.
