Abstract [en]

In this paper, an efficient architecture to optimize system performance, power consumption, and reliability of stacked mesh 3D NoC is proposed. Stacked mesh is a feasible architecture which takes advantage of the short inter-layer wiring delays, while suffering from inefficient intermediate buffers. To cope with this, an inter-layer communication mechanism is developed to enhance the buffer utilization, load balancing, and system fault-tolerance. The mechanism benefits from a congestion-aware and bus failure tolerant routing algorithm for vertical communication. To estimate the efficiency of the proposed architecture, the system has been simulated using uniform, hotspot 10, and Negative Exponential Distribution (NED) traffic patterns. In addition, a video conference encoder has been used as a real application for system analysis. Our extensive experiments show significant power and performance improvements compared to a typical stacked mesh 3D NoC.
