The resonant wavelengths of the μrings, the basic components of nanophotonic interconnects, can drift because of process variations (PV) and thermal fluctuation (TF), which may paralyze μrings because of the limited correction capability of current technology. Failed μrings cause network bandwidth loss, which renders the network unreliable. To mitigate this problem, this paper proposes BandArb that allocates the bandwidth at runtime according to demand and temperature. BandArb first re-assigns… CONTINUE READING
