As the number of modules grows, performance scalability of planar topology Networks-on-Chip (NoCs) becomes limited due to increasing hop-distances, since long paths involve more routers. The growing hopdistance affects both end-to-end network latency and overall network saturation. Hierarchical topologies provide routes with shorter hop-distances and therefore are more adequate for large systems. The introduction of hierarchical NoCs poses new challenges as they should provide the shortest hop… CONTINUE READING
