The effectiveness of an adaptive router in a Network on Chip (NoC) is evaluated by the selection metric it uses and its impact on overall performance. In this paper, we propose a flit flow history based load balancing selection strategy that can be used in any adaptive routers for output port selection. Using this selection strategy, we propose an adaptive router TRACKER, that keeps track of flow of flits through all its ports and updates this tracked information to its neighbors in a cost… CONTINUE READING
