Effects of Dynamic NoC Resource Management for Mixed Critically Applications
The dynamic NoC resource management for mixed criticality applications presented last year has been further elaborated to help minimizing on-chip router requirements, mainly buffer size, thereby improving average case performance and tightness of worst-case analysis. After a short introduction to the dynamic NoC and its protocol, new results will be presented, both for the original NoC and for a commercial many-core system, where resource management was implemented in software.
