Abstract [en]

The physical performance of a 3-Dimensional Network-on-Chip (NoC) mesh architecture employing through silicon vias (TSV) for vertical connectivity is investigated with a cycle-accurate RTL simulator. The physical latency and area impact of TSVs, switches, and the on-chip interconnect is evaluated to extract the maximum signaling speeds through the switches, horizontal and vertical network links. The relatively low parasitics of TSVs compared to the on-chip 2-D interconnect allow for higher signaling speeds between chip layers. The system-level impact on overall network performance as a result of clocking vertical packets at a higher rate through the TSV interconnect is simulated and reported.
