In this paper, a routing model for minimizing hot spots in the network on chip (NOC) is presented. The model makes use of AntNet routing algorithm which is based on Ant colony. Using this algorithm, which we call AntNet routing algorithm, heavy packet traffics are distributed on the chip minimizing the occurrence of hot spots. To evaluate the efficiency of(More)
— As technology shrinks, the power dissipated by the links of a network-on-chip (NoC) starts to compete with the power dissipated by the other elements of the communication subsystem, namely, the routers and the network interfaces (NIs). In this paper, we present a set of data encoding schemes aimed at reducing the power dissipated by the links of an NoC.(More)
Nowadays, in MPSoCs and NoCs, multicast protocol is significantly used for many parallel applications such as cache coherency in distributed shared-memory architectures, clock synchronization, replication, or barrier synchronization. Among several multicast schemes proposed in on chip interconnection networks, path-based multicast scheme has been proven to(More)
A b s t r a c e I n this paper, the efficiency of a fully adiabatic logic circuit is compared with its combinational and pipelined static CMOS counterparts. The performance of each circuit is studied in terms of the maximum frequency of operation, the minimum voltage of operation, the circuit energy consumption, and the switching noise generated by the(More)
—This paper proposes a technique for dynamic power reduction of pipelined processors. It is based on eliminating unnecessary transitions that are generated during the execution of NOP instructions. The approach includes the elimination of unnecessary changes in pipe register contents and the limitation of boundary movement of transitions caused by(More)
In this paper, a new approach for reducing the subthreshold leakage current of digital circuits is proposed. It does not use a multi-threshold process technique which is more expensive. The technique which makes to use of a new variable supply voltage oscillator, combines the ideas of both Standby Leakage Control Using Transistor Stacks (SRB) and variable(More)
