Three-dimensional network-on-chip (3D NoC) has been proposed to solve the complex on-chip communication issues in future 3D multicore systems. However, the thermal problems of 3D NoC are more serious than 2D NoC due to chip stacking. To keep the temperature below a certain thermal limit, the thermal emergent routers are usually throttled. Then, the topology(More)
The distribution of traffic and temperature in a highperformance three dimensional Network-on-Chip (3D NoC) system become more unbalanced because of chip stacking and applied minimal routing algorithms. To regulate the temperature under a certain thermal limit, the overheated nodes are usually throttled by run-time thermal management (RTM). Therefore, the(More)
The thermal problem of three-dimensional Network-on-Chip (3D NoC) is severer than 2D NoC because chip stacking. To keep the temperature below a certain thermal limit, the near-overheat routers are throttled and the 3D topology becomes Non-Stationary Irregular Mesh (NSI-Mesh). To ensure the successful packet delivery in the NSI-Mesh, Transport Layer Assisted(More)
The thermal issue is important for 3D Network-on-Chip systems. To ensure the thermal safety, the near-overheat routers are throttled and the 3D topology becomes Non-Stationary Irregular Mesh (NSI-Mesh). To ensure the successful packet delivery in the NSI-Mesh, Transport Layer Assisted Routing (TLAR) scheme was proposed. It has better performance than the(More)
The thermal challenge of 3D Network-on-Chip (NoC) is severer than 2D NoC. To ensure thermal safety and avoid huge performance back-off from temperature constraint, Runtime Thermal Management (RTM) is required. However the regulation of temperature requires throttling of the nearoverheated router, which makes the topology become NonStationary Irregular Mesh(More)
