A Hierarchical Shared Bus Architecture Design Space Exploration Method


In recent years, a design space exploration problem has been raised with an attempt to reduce time and resources for designing an optimal system-on-a-chip (SoC). State-of-the-art SoCs consist of multiple functions including many processors and many cores. This research proposes a design space exploration method considering a hierarchical bus architectures. The AMBA standard bus is focused as a target. It is because AMBA specification is widely used in many SoC industries as an efficient on-chip interconnect. The proposed method explores the architecture candidates, estimates the execution time and the area of each architecture within a very short time.
