Scalability Analysis of Evolving SoC Interconnect Protocols

Abstract

To face evolving communication requirements in Systemon-Chip (SoC) designs, interconnect fabric capabilities can be improved by adopting new topologies or new protocols. This paper will focus on the latter approach, analyzing the scalability features under increasing system load of shared bus STBus and AMBA AXI interconnects as opposed to the widely deployed AMBA AHB architecture.
