Network-on-chip architectures can improve the scalability, performance, and power efficiency of general multiprocessor systems and application-specific heterogeneous multicore and many-core SoCs (MCSoCs). This interconnection paradigm when combined with 3D integration technology offers advantages over 2D NoC design, such as shorter wire length, higher(More)
Photonic networks-on-chip (PNoCs) promise significant advantages over their electronic counterparts. In particular, they offer a potentially disruptive technology solution with fundamentally low power dissipation that remains independent of capacity while providing ultra-high throughput and minimal access latency. In conventional hybrid-PNoC systems,(More)
Future high-performance embedded and general purpose processors and systems-on-chip are expected to combine hundreds of cores integrated together to satisfy the power and performance requirements of large complex applications. As the number of cores continues to increase, the employment of low-power and high-throughput on-chip interconnect fabrics becomes(More)
Photonic Networks-on-Chip (PNoCs) have emerged as an auspicious solution to solve the interconnect bottleneck found in their electronic counterparts. Thanks to their low-power properties and the tremendous achieved throughput, PNoCs are presented as highly scalable architectures that can satisfy the requirements of future generation many-core systems.
