Due to their layered approach, Networks-on-Chip (NoC) are a promising communication backbone in the field of heterogeneous dynamically reconfigurable systems. In this paper a future FPGA architecture is discussed having a hardwired NoC as an additional high-level routing resource. Instead of implementing on-chip interconnection with valuable recon-figurable(More)
Managing reconfigurable hardware resources at runtime is expected to be a new task for future operating systems. But due to the mixture of parallel and sequential parts of dynamically reconfigurable applications, it is not entirely clear so far, how to use and to program such systems. In this paper, a new interpretation of dynamically reconfigurable(More)
Today, an increasing number of customers subscribes for a high bandwidth internet access. But not only communication speed is demanded. Quality-of-service moves more and more into the customers' focus. Both Carriers and Inter-net Service Providers (ISPs) have increasing requirements derived from new services they want to offer to their customers. We present(More)
—During the last years, the Internet has grown into a mass-medium for communication and information exchange. Millions of people are using the Internet for business and in social life. Users can be reached easily and cost-effectively. Unfortunately the Internet's open structure is the reason for its frequent misuse for illegal and criminal actions such as(More)
—During the last years, Networks-on-Chip (NoCs) have become a true alternative for the design of complex integrated Systems-on-Chip (SoC). Much effort has been spent for research on functionalities, mechanisms, and Quality-of-Service (QoS) features in NoCs. Hence, a broad and multi-faceted design space exists but leaves open, which mechanisms and design(More)
—During the last decades, the Internet has steadily developed into a mass medium. The target group radically changed compared to, e.g., the 90s. Because virtually everyone has access to the Internet, threats due to insecurity and anonymity reach critical levels and have to be tackled by both carriers and Internet Service Providers. Regaining Trust-by-Wire,(More)
—Several alternatives of mesh-type topologies have been published for the use in Networks-on-Chip. Due to their regularity, mesh-type topologies often serve as a foundation to investigate new ideas or to customize the topology to application-specific needs. This paper analyzes existing mesh-type topologies and compares their characteristics in terms of(More)
Selbst mit den neuesten Modellierungswerkzeugen und dem Einzug von Ob-jektorientierung und Abstraktion in die Hardware-Entwicklung ist der Aufwand für die Verifikation immer noch bestimmend für den gesamten Entwurfsprozess. Wiederverwendbarkeit und Flexibilität sind deshalb aus ökonomischer Sicht unabdingbar. Es wird eine SystemC-Verifikationsumgebung(More)
