LOST or Load to Store sequences in handheld app executions are generic acceleratable sequences of instructions. Unlike the domain specific acceleration units or IPs found in modern handheld SoCs such as video codecs, camera interfaces etc., LOSTs capture the intrinsically common sequences of instructions found in all handheld app executions. Our IISWC ’17 paper lists 5 most common LOST sequences found in handheld apps. The resources below provides a more comprehensive list of LOST that we found in 10 handheld app characterization.
