In this paper, a routing model for minimizing hot spots in the network on chip (NOC) is presented. The model makes use of AntNet routing algorithm which is based on Ant colony. Using this algorithm, which we call AntNet routing algorithm, heavy packet traffics are distributed on the chip minimizing the occurrence of hot spots. To evaluate the efficiency of(More)

Congestion-aware routing algorithms can improve network throughput by avoiding packets to be routed through congested areas. In this paper, we propose a minimal/non-minimal routing algorithm to alleviate congestion in the network by making use of all available paths between sources and destinations. The simplicity of the proposed algorithm provides a cost(More)
Stochastic hill climbing algorithm is adapted to rapidly find the appropriate start node in the application mapping of network-based many-core systems. Due to highly dynamic and unpredictable workload of such systems, an agile run-time task allocation scheme is required. The scheme is desired to map the tasks of an incoming application at run-time onto an(More)
The communication requirements of many-core embedded systems are convened by the emerging Network-on-Chip (NoC) paradigm. As on-chip communication reliability is a crucial factor in many-core systems, the NoC paradigm should address the reliability issues. Using fault-tolerant routing algorithms to reroute packets around faulty regions will increase the(More)
Increasing the number of processors in a single chip toward network-based many-core systems requires a run-time task allocation algorithm. We propose an efficient mapping algorithm that assigns communicating tasks of incoming applications onto resources of a many-core system utilizing Network-on-Chip paradigm.

Many parallel applications in MPSoCs take advantage of multicast communication. Several multicast schemes such as path-based, tree-based, and unicast-based have been proposed in interconnection networks. Path-based multicast scheme has been proven to be more efficient than the other schemes in on-chip interconnection network. A new adaptive routing model(More)
A novel routing algorithm, named Balanced Adaptive Routing Protocol (BARP), is proposed for NoCs to provide adaptive routing and ensure deadlock-free and livelock-free routing at the same time. By evenly distributing input packets of a router among all its shortest path output ports, a novel adaptive routing protocol for avoiding congestion condition(More)
Nowadays, in MPSoCs and NoCs, multicast protocol is significantly used for many parallel applications such as cache coherency in distributed shared-memory architectures, clock synchronization, replication, or barrier synchronization. Among several multicast schemes proposed in on chip interconnection networks, path-based multicast scheme has been proven to(More)
