Network on chip (NoC) may be the primary interconnect mechanism for future systems-on-chip (SoC). Real-life SoCs typically include hot-modules such as DRAM controller or floating point unit, which are bandwidth limited and in high demand by other units. In this paper we demonstrate that the mere existence of one or more hot-modules in a wormhole-based NoC dramatically reduces network efficiency and causes an unfair allocation of system resources. We demonstrate that a single hot-module destroys… CONTINUE READING
