Chapter 7. NoC Programming

This chapter focuses on parallel programming for network-on-chip (NoC) platforms, with a significant number of cores operating in parallel. Raising the abstraction level for computation and communication specification seems the only way to master the complexity of mapping a large software application onto an multi-processor systems-on-chip (MPSoC). Even though the bulk of this book is on architectural and lower-level issues, high-level programming models are needed to support abstraction of hardware and software architectures.

Parallel computer architectures and parallel programming have deep roots in high-performance computing. Early programming abstractions for parallel machines go back almost 60 years. In the last ...
