Book Description :

Traditionally, design space exploration for Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) has focused on the computational aspects of the problem at hand. However, as the number of components on a single chip and their performance continue to increase, the communication architecture plays a major role in the area, performance and energy consumption of the overall system. As a result, a shift from computation-based to communication-based design becomes mandatory. Towards this end, network-on-chip (NoC) communication architectures have emerged recently as a promising alternative to classical bus and point-to-point communication architectures. In this dissertation, we study outstanding research problems related to modeling, analysis and optimization of NoC communication architectures. More precisely, we present novel design methodologies, software tools and FPGA prototypes to aid the design of application-specific NoCs.

Book Description :

Abstract: Network-on-Chip (NoC) communication architectures have been recognized as the most scalable and efficient solution for on chip communication challenges in the multi-core era. Diverse demanding applications coupled with the ability to integrate billions of transistors on a single chip are some of the main driving forces behind ever increasing performance requirements towards the level that requires several tens to over a hundred of cores per chip. Small scale multicore processors so far have been a great commercial success and found applicability in many applications. Systems using multi-core processors are now the norm rather than the exception. As the number of cores or components integrated into a single system is keep increasing, the design of on-chip communication architecture is becoming more challenging. The increasing number of components in a system translates into more inter-component communication that must be handled by the on-chip communication infrastructure. Future system-on-chip (SoC) designs require predictable, scalable and reusable on-chip communication architectures to increase reliability and productivity. Current bus-based interconnect architectures are inherently non-scalable, less adaptable for reuse and their reliability decreases with system size. NoC communication guarantees scalability, high-speed, high-bandwidth communication with minimal wiring overhead and routing issues. NoCs are layered, packet-based on-chip communication networks integrated onto a single chip. NoC consists of resources and switches that are directly connected in a way that resources are able to communicate with each other by sending messages. The proficiency of a NoC to meet its design goals and budget requirements for the target application depends on its design. Often, these design goals conflict and trade-off with each other. The multi-dimensional pull of design constraints in addition to technology scaling complicates the process of NoC design in many aspects, as they are expected to support high performance and reliability along with low cost, smaller area, less time-to-market and lower power consumption. To aid in the process, this research presents design methodologies to achieve low power and high performance NoC communication architectures for nanometer SoCs.

Book Description :

"As semiconductor technologies continues to scale, more and more cores are being integrated on the same multicore chip. This increase in complexity poses the challenge of efficient data transfer between these cores. Several on-chip network architectures are proposed to improve the design flexibility and communication efficiency of such multicore chips. However, in a larger system consisting of several multicore chips across a board or in a System-in-Package (SiP), the performance is limited by the communication among and within these chips. Such systems, most commonly found within computing modules in typical data center nodes or server racks, are in dire need of an efficient interconnection architecture. Conventional interchip communication using wireline links involve routing the data from the internal cores to the peripheral I/O ports, travelling over the interchip channels to the destination chip, and finally getting routed from the I/O to the internal cores there. This multihop communication increases latency and energy consumption while decreasing data bandwidth in a multichip system. Furthermore, the intrachip and interchip communication architectures are separately designed to maximize design flexibility. Jointly designing them could, however, improve the communication efficiency significantly and yield better solutions. Previous attempts at this include an all-photonic approach that provides a unified inter/intra-chip optical network, based on recent progress in nano-photonic technologies. Works on wireless inter-chip interconnects successfully yielded better results than their wired counterparts, but their scopes were limited to establishing a single wireless connection between two chips rather than a communication architecture for a system as a whole. In this thesis, the design of a seamless hybrid wired and wireless interconnection network for multichip systems in a package is proposed. The design utilizes on-chip wireless transceivers with dimensions spanning up to tens of centimeters. It manages to seamlessly bind both intrachip and interchip communication architectures and enables direct chip-to-chip communication between the internal cores. It is shown through cycle accurate simulations that the proposed design increases the bandwidth and reduces the energy consumption when compared to the state-of-the-art wireline I/O based multichip communications."--Abstract.

Book Description :

The notion of platform based design is considered as a viable solution to boost the design productivity by favouring reuse design methodology. With the scaling down of device feature size and scaling up of design complexity, throughput limitations, signal integrity and signal latency are becoming a bottleneck in future communication centric System-on-Chip (SoC) design. This has given birth to communication centric platform based designs. Development of heterogeneous multi-core architectures has caused the on-chip communication medium tailored for a specific application domain to deal with multidomain traffic patterns. This makes the current application specific communication centric platforms unsuitable for future SoC architectures. The work presented in this thesis, endeavours to explore the current communication media to establish the expectations from future on-chip interconnects. A novel communication centric platform based design flow is proposed, which consists of four communication centric platforms that are based on shared global bus, hierarchical bus, crossbars and a novel hybrid communication medium. Developed with a smart platform controller, the platforms support Open Core Protocol (OCP) socket standard, allowing cores to integrate in a plug and play fashion without the need to reprogram the pre-verified platforms. This drastically reduces the design time of SoC architectures. Each communication centric platform has different throughput, area and power characteristics, thus, depending on the design constraints, processing cores can be integrated to the most appropriate communication platform to realise the desired SoC architecture. A novel hybrid communication medium is also developed in this thesis, which combines the advantages of two different types of communication media in a single SoC architecture. The hybrid communication medium consists of crossbar matrix and shared bus medium . Simulation results and implementation of WiMAX receiver as a real-life example shows a 65% increase in data throughput than shared bus based communication medium, 13% decrease in area and 11% decrease in power than crossbar based communication medium. In order to automate the generation of SoC architectures with optimised communication architectures, a tool called SOCCAD (SoC Communication architecture development) is developed. Components needed for the realisation of the given application can be selected from the tool's in-built library. Offering an optimised communication centric placement, the tool generates the complete SystemC code for the system with different interconnect architectures, along with its power and area characteristics. The generated SystemC code can be used for quick simulation and coupled with efficient test benches can be used for quick verification. Network-on-Chip (NoC) is considered as a solution to the communication bottleneck in future SoC architectures with data throughput requirements of over 10GB/s. It aims to provide low power, efficient link utilisation, reduced data contention and reduced area on silicon. Current on-chip networks, developed with fixed architectural parameters, do not utilise the available resources efficiently. To increase this efficiency, a novel dynamically reconfigurable NoC (drNoC) is developed in this thesis. The proposed drNoC reconfigures itself in terms of switching, routing and packet size with the changing communication requirements of the system at run time, thus utilising the maximum available channel bandwidth. In order to increase the applicability of drNoC, the network interface is designed to support OCP socket standard. This makes drNoC a highly reuseable communication framework, qualifying it as a communication centric platform for high data intensive SoC architectures. Simulation results show a 32% increase in data throughput and 22-35% decrease in network delay when compared with a traditional NoC with fixed parameters.
