A Method for Efficient Mapping and Reliable Routing for NoC Architectures with Minimum Bandwidth and Area(2008)
Network-on-Chip (NoC) is an on-chip communication methodology that has been proposed as an alternative to busbased communication in order to cope with the increased complexity in embedded designs. This paper presents a method for assigning tasks to nodes in a 2-D mesh, and for determining the nodes positions on the mesh using simulated annealing. The method proposes a new efficient routing algorithm that minimizes blocking while increasing bandwidth throughput. The method is implemented and various benchmarks are attempted.
