In this paper we present DiSR, a first effort for a distributed segment-based approach to routing and defect mapping in a nano-scale, topology agnostic scenario based on DNA self-assembly. The main aim is exploiting the already-proven qualities of segment-based routing without neither requiring a topology graph as input, nor needing a centralized algorithm(More)
Several emerging techniques have been recently proposed for alleviating the communication latency and the energy consumption issues in multi/many-core architectures. One of such emerging communication techniques, namely, WiNoC replaces the traditional wired links with the use of wireless medium. Unfortunately, the energy consumed by the RF transceiver(More)
In a wireless Network-on-Chip (WiNoC) the radio transceiver accounts for a significant fraction of the total communication energy. Recently, a configurable transceiver architecture able to regulate its transmitting power based on the location of the destination node has been proposed. Unfortunately, the use of such transceiver requires a costly, time(More)
The power dissipated by the links of a network-on-chip (NoC) accounts for a significant fraction of the overall power dissipated by the on-chip communication fabric. Such fraction becomes more relevant as technology shrinks. This paper presents a technique aimed at reducing the energy consumption of the NoC by means of link voltage swing reduction. The(More)
The power dissipated by the links of a network on chip (NoC) accounts for a significant fraction of the overall power budget. Reducing the operating voltage of the network links, results in a square reduction of their power contribution. Unfortunately, the voltage reduction has a negative impact on communication reliability in terms of bit error rate.(More)
In this work we introduce the design and implementation of DiSR, a distributed approach to topology discovery and defect mapping in nanoscale network-on-chip scenario. We first describe the conceptual elements and the execution model of DiSR, showing how the open-source Nanoxim platform has been used to evaluate the proposed approach in terms of node(More)
