Network-on-chip (NoC) has been used as the new on-chip communication paradigm. Asynchronous NoCs are power efficient and robust to process variation but they are slow. One reason for the low speed is the way that asynchronous routers use to build wide channels. To meet the bandwidth requirement, current routers broaden their channels by synchronizing multiple sub-channels. The C-element and buffer trees introduced by the synchronization increase the cycle period. A new router is proposed to use… CONTINUE READING
