Energy consumption of routers in commonly used mesh-based on-chip networks for chip multiprocessors is an increasingly important concern: these routers consist of a crossbar and complex control logic and can require significant buffers, hence high energy and area consumption. In contrast, an alternative design uses ring-based networks to connect network(More)
As interconnect becomes an important component of modern Chip Multiprocessors (CMPs), significant work has gone into finding the best tradeoff between performance and energy efficiency for the Network-on-Chip (NoC). Increasing core counts lead to high bandwidth demands and tight power and area constraints. One recent line of work examines bufferless(More)
