Scalable mutli-layer barrier synchronization on NoC

Abstract

Barrier is a widely used synchronization mechanism adopted in different scales of parallel systems. Being a global operation in a system, scalability has become a critical design concern of the barrier implementation. Reducing the number of messages and hop count are main challenges for attaining a well-scalable barrier design. This paper proposes an… (More)
