Introduction

Abstract

The continual advancement of semiconductor technology and unconquerable obstacles for designing efficient single-core processors together are rapidly driving computer architecture to enter the many-core era. Mitigating development challenges for many-core processors needs a communication-centric cross-layer optimization method. The traditional bus and crossbar communication structures have several shortcomings, including poor scalability, low bandwidth, large latency, and high power consumption. To address these limitations, the network-on-chip (NoC) introduces a packet-switched fabric for on-chip communication, and it becomes the de facto many-core interconnection mechanism. The baseline NoC design exploration ...
