A Quality-of-Service Mechanism for Interconnection Networks in System-on-Chips

W.-D. Weber, J. Chou, I. Swarbrick, D. Wingard
Design, Automation and Test in Europe  
However, the known solutions for off-chip interconnects such as large-scale networks are not necessarily applicable to the on-chip environment.  ...  Latency and memory constraints for on-chip interconnects are quite different from largerscale interconnects. This paper introduces a novel on-chip interconnect arbitration scheme.  ...  CPU MIPS Work focussed on quality-of-service specifically for on-chip interconnects is much sparser and more recent.  ...

Chip-Package Hybrid Clock Distribution Network and DLL for Low Jitter Clock Delivery

D. Chung, C. Ryu, H. Kim, C. Lee, J. Kim, K. Bae, J. Yu, H. Yoo, J. Kim
2006 IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits  
The proposed hybrid clock distribution network and DLL provide digital noise-free and low-jitter clock signals by utilizing lossless package layer interconnections instead of lossy on-chip global wires  ...  The lossless package layer interconnections become high-frequency waveguides and provide a repeater-free clock distribution network; thus, the clock signal becomes free of on-chip power supply noise.  ...  The chip-package hybrid design scheme still requires on-chip interconnections for wafer-level tests.  ...

Interconnection Generation for System-on-Chip Design

Markus Winter, Gerhard Fettweis
2006 2006 International Symposium on System-on-Chip  
In recent years interconnection architectures for system-on-chip (SoC) design have been subject of intense research.  ...  The architectures range from clustered bus based systems to packetswitched network-on-chips. Thereby, the application of these architectures to systems should not be done by hand but automated.  ...  Therefore, network behavior must be tested for all assumable cases of access from modules. It is impossible to do this for every system-on-chip again.  ...
