Abstract: This paper proposed a method for building a simulator for hybrid memory architecture based on gem5. When building, this method first added a hybrid memory controller between the memory bus and the memory model, then introduced the nonvolatile memory model of NVMain and hooked it up to the the newly added hybrid memory controller along with the native DRAM model of gem5. This method could achieve the goal of building a simulator for hybrid memory architecture, which was proved by the experiment results.

Key words: hybrid memory, simulator, phase change memory
