PBuf: An On-Chip Packet Transfer Engine for MONARCH

  title={PBuf: An On-Chip Packet Transfer Engine for MONARCH},

  journal={2006 49th IEEE International Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems},
This paper describes the architecture and implementation of an on-chip packet interface/router called the packet buffer (PBuf) employed in the MOrphable Networked microARCHitecture (MONARCH). This work provides a brief overview of MONARCH and its subsystems to provide motivation for the PBuf design. MONARCH employs a hierarchy with various levels of address spaces. To connect the subsystems and keep the network complexities low, communication packets undergo an address translation process while… CONTINUE READING
