In this demonstration we present an enhanced version of the usual Spidergon STNoC design flow. In addition, we show the automatic generation of a simulation platform that can be used to perform early architecture exploration.
In this paper, we detail the design and implementation of a router for vertically-partially-connected 3D-NoCs based on stacked 2D-meshes. This router implements the necessary hardware to support a recently introduced routing algorithm called "Elevator-First", which targets topologies with irregularly placed vertical connections in a deadlock free manner,… (More)
Networks-on-chips (NoCs) have emerged as an effective interconnection solution for modern MPSoCs. However, NoCs are characterized by a wide range of parameters and early performance estimations have become keys. We propose an approach to build static cost models (e.g. area) of NoC components. The modeling relies on Kriging theory, which catches the complex… (More)
