Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Many mobile systems have to achieve both high performance and low memory usage, and the total performance of the wide range of platforms now can be affected by the effectiveness of Garbage Collection(GC). GC algorithms have been actively studied and improved, but they still has not reached a fundamental solution. In this paper, we focus on the point that the objects on the call stack should be traced in many GC algorithms, and
propose a hardware support technique for speeding up this tracing. To trace objects, it is needed to find pointers on the call stack. Hence, we install a table for managing all pointers on the call stack. By referring this table, GC routine can detect pointers immediately. The result of the simulation experiment shows the proposal method can lead to low GC latency.
