  • Networks-on-Chip (NoCs) have been recently proposed as a promising solution to complex on-chip communication problems. The lack of an unified representation of applications and architectures makes NoC problem formulation and classification both difficult and obscure. To remedy this situation, we provide a general description for NoC architectures and applications and then enumerate several outstanding research problems (denoted by P1-P8) organized under three topics: communication… CONTINUE READING
