Chapter 2

A single-cycle router with wing channels

Abstract

With increasing numbers of cores, the communication latency of networks-on-chip becomes a dominant problem owing to complex operations per node. In this chapter, we try to reduce the communication latency by proposing a single-cycle router architecture with wing channels, which forward the incoming packets to free ports immediately with the inspection of switch allocation results. In addition, the incoming packets assigned to wing channels can fill in the time slots of the crossbar switch and reduce the contentions with subsequent ones, thereby increasing the throughput effectively. We design the proposed router using a 65 nm CMOS process, and the results show that it supports different ...
