Design trade-offs in energy efficient NoC architectures
Paper i proceeding, 2014
This paper studies design trade-offs in energy efficient Networks-on-Chip by evaluating every network architecture that derives when we apply all possible variations of design-configuration parameters on a baseline 2D mesh. Network separation (P), concentration (C), express channels (X), flit widths (W), and virtual channels (V). Our comperative analysis selects the network architecture configuration that gives the best energy delay product (EDP) while allowing a maximum area margin of 15% over the most energy efficient configuration of the baseline.
