Packet-based Networks-on-Chip (NoC) have emerged as the most viable candidates for the interconnect backbone of future Chip Multi-Processors (CMP). The flit size (or width) is one of the fundamental design parameters within a NoC router, which affects both the performance and the cost of the network. Most studies pertaining to the NoC of general-purpose… CONTINUE READING
