Highly-scalable 3D CLOS NOC for many-core CMPs

Aamir Zia, Sachhidh Kannan, Garrett Rose, H. Jonathan Chao
2010 Proceedings of the 8th IEEE International NEWCAS Conference 2010  
In this paper, we propose using 3D integrated CLOS network-on-chip (CNOC) to achieve these goals. We present the design of a 512-node 3D CNOC and evaluate its power consumption.  ...  We compare the power consumption of 3D CNOC with a planar CNOC implementation and with 2D and 3D mesh topologies.  ...  The main attraction of such low-radix topologies, when employed in small networks, is that they facilitate a simple network organization with low latency.  ...

Exploiting New Interconnect Technologies in On-Chip Communication

John Kim, Kiyoung Choi, Gabriel Loh
2012 IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems  
In such manycore processors, the communication between cores with the on-chip interconnect is becoming a challenge as it not only must provide low latency and high bandwidth but also needs to be cost-effective  ...  We provide an overview of the different technologies that are available and then, investigate how these interconnect technologies impact the architecture of the on-chip communication and the system design  ...  As the radix increases, the network diameter decreases, which can increase performance by reducing the hop count and network latency.  ...

2016 Proceedings of the Second International Symposium on Memory Systems - MEMSYS '16  
Therefore, focusing on low latency (e.g., low diameter) networks that also have high bisection bandwidth is critical.  ...  We identify several designs that have reasonable port costs and can scale to hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of nodes with maximum latencies as low as two network hops and high bisection bandwidths  ...  In general, low-diameter networks can be built out to 1,000,000 nodes with a modest number of ports: high-diameter Flattened Butterfly designs and Fishnet designs will scale to these sizes in under 30  ...
