Abstract

Hardware-assisted garbage collection makes use of dedicated circuits located within a special expansion memory module to enhance the response time and throughput of garbage collection operations. This paper provides detailed descriptions of the memory cycles required to implement each of the primitive garbage collection operations provided by the hardware-assisted garbage collection module.
