Crossbars are key components of communication switches used to construct multiprocessor interconnection networks. For a fixed number of nodes, larger crossbars result in reduced probability of conflicts and allows packets to traverse the network in fewer hops. However, increasing the size of the crossbar also increases the delay of the arbiter used to(More)
Crossbars are key components of communication switches used to construct multiprocessor interconnection networks. Multi-queue input buffers have been shown to lead to high performance in such networks by allowing packets at an input port to be processed in non-FIFO order. Symmetric crossbar arbiters efficiently resolve conflicting requests in switches with(More)
As chip complexity keeps increasing in system-on-chip (SoC), the on-chip interconnect has become a critical issue for large-scale chip design. It has been proposed that the packet-switched network exchanging messages between intellectual property (IP) cores is a viable solution for the SoC interconnect problem. The design of the router in such network on(More)
