In this course, we first provide a comprehensive overview of memory systems, taking an approach that covers both fundamentals and recent research. We first introduce fundamental principles and ideas, covering DRAM and emerging memory technologies as well as many architectural concepts and ideas related to memory organization, memory control, processing-in-memory, and memory latency / energy / bandwidth / reliability / security / QoS. We discuss major challenges facing modern memory systems (and the computing platforms we currently design around the memory system) in the presence of greatly increasing demand for data and its fast analysis. We examine some promising research and design directions to overcome these challenges. On the research-related part of course (sprinkled across topical lectures), we discuss the following key research topics in detail, focusing on both open problems and potential solution directions:
