Abstract: The original CACTI tool was released in 1994 to give computer architects a fast tool to model SRAM caches. It has been widely adopted and used since. Two new versions were released to add area and active power modeling to CACTI. This new version adds a model for leakage power and updates the basic circuit structure and device parameters to better reflect the advances in scaling semiconductors which have been made in the last ten years. A graphical web interface has also been added to make CACTI more accessible to a larger potential audience.
