This paper proposes an ultra fine-grained run-time power gating of on-chip router, in which power supply to each router component (e.g., VC queue, crossbar MUX, and output latch) can be individually controlled in response to the applied workload.As only the router components which are just transferring a packet are activated, the leakage power of the on-chip network can be reduced to the near-optimal level.However, a certain amount of wakeup latency is required to activate the sleeping… CONTINUE READING
