This paper aims to reduce the pessimism of the analysis of the multi-point progressive blocking (MPB) problem in real-time priority-preemptive wormhole networks-on-chip. It shows that the amount of buffering on each network node can influence the worst-case interference that packets can suffer along their routes, and it proposes a novel analytical model that can quantify such interference as a function of the buffer size. It shows that, perhaps counter-intuitively, smaller buffers can result indoi:10.23919/date.2018.8342006 dblp:conf/date/IndrusiakBN18 fatcat:cyfx65ipfbge7ocnfrewthsakq
