Hierarchical topologies are frequently proposed for large Networks-on-Chip (NoCs). Hierarchical architectures utilize, at the upper levels, long links of the order of the die size. RC delays of long links might reach dozens of clock cycles in advanced technology nodes, if delay reduction techniques (e.g. wire sizing and repeater insertion) are not applied.(More)
