Three-dimensional (3D) integration offers greater device integration, reduced signal delay and reduced interconnect power. It also provides greater design flexibility by allowing heterogeneous integration. Stacked mesh 3D NoC architecture was proposed to take advantage of the intrinsic capability of reducing the wire length in 3D ICs. However, this… CONTINUE READING
