Chapter 8. Custom Bus-Based On-Chip Communication Architecture Design

In addition to the bus-based on-chip communication architecture standards described in Chapter 3, there has been a lot of research on developing custom bus architectures over the last several years. Such custom architectures attempt to address the shortcomings of standard on-chip communication architectures by utilizing new topologies and protocols to obtain improvements for common design goals, such as performance and power. These novel topologies and protocols are often customized to suit a particular application, and typically include optimizations to meet application-specific design goals. Figure 8.1 shows where the custom communication architecture selection process fits ...
