Topology Design of Extended Torus and Ring for Low Latency Network-on-Chip Architecture

Abstract; In essence, Network-on-Chip (NoC) also known as on-chip interconnection network has been proposed as a design solution to System-on-Chip (SoC). The routing algorithm, topology and switching technique are significant because of the most influential effect on the overall performance of Network-onChip (NoC). Designing of large scale topology alongside the support of deadlock free, low latency, high throughput and low power consumption is notably challenging in particular with expanding network size. This paper proposed an 8x8 XX-Torus and 64 nodes XX-Ring topology schemes for Network-on-Chip to minimize the latency by decrease the node diameter from the source node to destination node. Correspondingly, we compare in differences on the performance of mesh, full-mesh, torus and ring topologies with XX-Torus and XX-Ring topologies in term of latency. Results show that XX-Ringoutperforms the conventional topologies in term of latency. XX-Ring decreases the average latency by 106.28%, 14.80%, 6.7 1%, 1.73%, 442.24% over the mesh, fully-mesh, torus, XX-torus, and Ringtopologies.
