Please make sure you clearly state your student ID (StudentID) on the first page of your write-up.
(i) the associativity will be calculated as follows:
N = StudentID mod 4 if ( N == 0) associativity = 0 /* direct mapped cache */ if ( N == 1) associativity = 2 /* 2-way set-associative cache */ if ( N == 2) associativity = 4 /* 4-way set-associative cache */ else associtivity = MAX /* fully-associative cache */For the 2nd associativity level do:
N = (N + 1) mod 4then calculate the associativity using the same formula used to calculate the first associativity.
(ii) the block size will be calculated as follows:
K = StudentID mod 6 blockSize = 2^K wordsFor the 2nd block size do:
K = (K + 3) mod 6 blockSize = 2^K words
