White Paper: Segmentation-based Memory Protection Mechanism on Intel® Atom™ Microarchitecture: Coding Optimizations

Segmented Memory Protection on Intel® Microarchitecture

The white paper emphasizes aspects of the segmented memory protection mechanism implemented on Intel® Atom™ microarchitecture developers can use to create a superior performance solution.

Paging-based protection mechanisms are preferred over solutions based on segmentation, because the same code running with non-zero segment base registers values can experience a delay in the access operations on the system memory. When segmentation is needed by design, good coding techniques and the use of compilers optimized for the Intel® Atom™ microarchitecture can significantly improve performance.
