In this paper, we propose a novel NoC architecture, called darkNoC, where multiple layers of architecturally identical, but physically different routers are integrated, leveraging the extra transistors available due to dark silicon. Each layer is separately optimized for a particular voltage-frequency range by the adroit use of multi-Vt circuit optimization. At a given time, only one of the network layers is illuminated while all the other network layers are dark. We provide architectural… CONTINUE READING
