Network-on-Chips (NoCs) paradigm is fast becoming a defacto standard for designing communication infrastructure for multicores with the dual goals of reducing power consumption while improving performance. However, research has shown that power consumption and wiring complexity will be two of the major constraints that will hinder the growth of future NoCs(More)
As power dissipation in future Networks-on-Chips (NoCs) is projected to be a major bottleneck, researchers are actively engaged in developing alternate power-efficient technology solutions. Photonic interconnects is a disruptive technology solution that is capable of delivering the communication bandwidth at low power dissipation when the number of cores is(More)
This paper proposes a highly connected optical interconnect based architecture that maximizes the channel availabilifyforfuture scalable parallel computers such as Distributed Shared Memory (DSM) multiprocessors and cluster networks. As the system size increases, various messages (requests, responses and acknowledgments) increase in the network resulting in(More)
As the number of cores increases exponentially on a single chip, the design and integration of both the on-chip network facilitating intercore communication, and the cache coherence protocol for enabling shared memory programming have become critical for improved energy-efficiency and overall chip performance. With traditional metal interconnects facing(More)
The power dissipation of metallic interconnects in future multicore architectures is projected to be a major bottleneck as we scale to sub-nanometer regime. This has motivated researchers to develop alternate power-efficient technology solutions to the performance limitations of future multicores. Nanophotonic interconnects (NIs) is a disruptive technology(More)
As Networks-on-Chips (NoCs) continue to become more susceptible to process variation, cross-talk, hard and soft errors with technology scaling to sub-nanometer, there is an urgent need for adaptive Error Correction Coding (ECC) schemes for improving the resiliency of the system. The goal of adaptive ECC schemes should be two fold; decrease power consumption(More)
Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures have been adopted by a growing number of multi-core designs as a flexible and scalable solution to the increasing wire delay constraints in the deep sub-micron regime. However, the shrinking feature size limits the performance of NoCs due to power and area constraints. Research into the optimization of NoCs has shown that(More)
As device feature size continues to shrink, reliability becomes a severe issue due to process variation, particle-induced transient errors, and transistor wear-out/stress such as Negative Bias Temperature Instability (NBTI). Unless this problem is addressed, chip multi-processor (CMP) systems face low yields and short mean-time-to-failure (MTTF). This paper(More)
Network-on-Chips (NoCs) are quickly becoming the standard communication paradigm for the growing number of cores on the chip. While NoCs can deliver sufficient bandwidth and enhance scalability, NoCs suffer from high power consumption due to the router microarchitecture and communication channels that facilitate inter-core communication. As technology keeps(More)
