Deionizer: A Tool for Capturing and Embedding I/O Cells

Unknown author (2004-06-07)

In this paper, we introduce the concept of a deionizer. A deionizeris a special type of partial evaluator whose purpose is to create a newversion of a program that can run without accessing a partial set of I/O resources.Although a deionizer can be used for application embedding, this short paper addresses the use of dionization for improving benchmark accuracy.The paper briefly discusses the key ideas and then explains the implementation and useof the MIT deionizer. This deionizer was used to produce the results for a recent conference paper that compares theRaw processor to a Pentium III.
