Network-on-Chip technology has become very popular in the recent decade to address the scalability issue in multi-core processors. Developing the inter-connection network improves the performance of multi-core systems at the cost of additional power and design complexity. Power-gating of router buffers as the most power consuming part of Network-on-Chip has been proposed recently to reduce the static power consumption. However, power-gating has its own shortcomings in terms of delay and power… CONTINUE READING
