A Novel Flow Control Mechanism to Avoid Multi-Point Progressive Blocking in Hard Real-Time Priority-Preemptive NoCs

A. Burns, L. S. Indrusiak, N. Smirnov, J. Harrison
2020 2020 IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS)  
The recently uncovered problem of multi-point progressive blocking (MPB) has significantly increased the complexity of schedulability analysis of priority-preemptive wormhole networks-on-chip.  ...  Rather than construct the analysis to fit the protocol, we modify the protocol so that effective analysis applies.  ...  Schedulability analysis Schedulability analysis for priority-preemptive wormhole networks has existed for more than two decades, even before networks-on-chip were a reality.  ...

Real-Time Communication Analysis for On-Chip Networks with Wormhole Switching

Zheng Shi, Alan Burns
2008 Second ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (nocs 2008)  
In this paper, we discuss a real-time on-chip communication service with a priority-based wormhole switching policy. A novel off-line schedulability analysis approach is presented.  ...  Due to the inevitable existence of parallel interference, we prove that the general problem of determining the exact schedulability of real-time traffic-flow over the onchip network is NP-hard.  ...  System model and attributes The packet level analysis approach of real-time communication in general networks [22] in the absence of buffer restrictions is not suitable for wormhole networks.  ...

2019 arXiv   pre-print
We demonstrate the analytical dominance of the fixed-priority SP^2 over some of the existing sufficient schedulability analysis for fixed-priority wormhole switched network-on-chips.  ...  However, not only the distributed structure but also the link switching on the NoCs have imposed a great challenge in the design and analysis for real-time systems.  ...  Another research line to analyze the worst-case response time of wormhole-switched fixed-priority NoC with preemptive virtual channels is to apply Network Calculus and Compositional Performance Analysis  ...

We present a novel feasibility analysis for real-time (RT) and nonrealtime (NT) messages in wormhole-routed networks on chip.  ...  The feasibility of a message in a network concerns if its timing property can be satisfied without jeopardizing any messages already in the network to meet their timing properties.  ...  In [2] , based on a global priority, Preemptive Pipelined Circuit Switching for Real-Time (PPCS-RT) decouples the message delivery into two phases: path establishment and data delivery, where the path  ...
