Foreword

This book is about System-on-Chip design using configurable processors. Steve has taken up some extremely important points that are stemming from the fact that to keep on improving the performance of systems implemented on silicon we have to consider multi-processor SoC (MPSOC), not just as an alternative but as The Alternative. The ITRS roadmap points to tens or hundreds of processing engines in a single SoC design. Multiple processors imply inter-processor communication and a diversity of specialized processors. Communication and computation.

I was happy to see that Steve has absorbed some ideas about Networks-on-Chip from all the invited talks he had to sit through with me in the International Symposium on System-on-Chip last fall. ...
