The Odd-Even (OE) [5] routing strategy has greatly improved the degree of adaptiveness over other adaptive routing strategies. It depends on an efficient selection strategy to achieve the potential performance of the improved adaptiveness. Asica et al. [3] proposed a NoP selection strategy, which aims to make use of such adaptiveness. However, there exists(More)
We report a facile synthesis of bifunctional Fe3O4-Ag(125)I heterodimers for use as dual-modality imaging agents in magnetic resonance (MR) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). We introduced (125)I, which is a clinically used radioisotope, as a SPECT reporter, into Fe3O4-Ag heterodimer nanoparticles to provide a new type of bifunctional(More)
Consumer electronics products contain complex System-on-Chip (SOC) which needs efficient communication interconnects. Network-on-Chip (NoC) is a scalable solution for the communication requirement of SoC. Devising an effective routing algorithm for NoC is a great challenge. In this paper, we present a methodology of designing routing algorithms based on(More)
As a scalable substitute of on-chip bus, network-on-chip (NoC) is proposed as the communication infrastructure in modern multi/many-core system-on-chip (SoC). Efficient communication in NoC is critical to the overall SoC performance. Although local congestion has an important impact on communication delay, it is barely taken into account when designing(More)
How to precisely measure performance of routing algorithm is an important issue when studying routing algorithm of network-on-chip (NoC). The degree of adaptiveness is the most widely used metric in the literature. However, our study shows that the degree of adaptiveness cannot precisely measure performance of routing algorithm. It cannot account for why(More)
Consumer electronics products contain complex System-on-Chip (SOC). The communication efficiency among these units becomes crucial. Until recent years Network-on-Chip (NoC) is presented to be the communication infrastructure. In this paper, we conduct a case study of the Odd-Even turn model which is an adaptive routing algorithm for the NoC. Simulation(More)
The fact that the on-chip network will suddenly get saturated indicates that it is necessary to devise an effective flow control strategy. Through tracing the status of the network buffer space we found that the payload of the on-chip network can not get beyond an upper bound to avoid vicious congestion. Specifically, quarter of the total network buffer(More)
