Monitoring and Control of Temperature in Networks-on-Chip

Document 1.pdf (472 KB)


Increasing integration densities and the emergence of nanotechnology cause issues related to reliability and power consumption to become dominant factors for the design of modern multi-core systems. Since the arising problems are enforced by high circuit temperatures, monitoring and control of on-chip temperature profiles need to be considered during design phase as well as during system operation. Hence, in this paper different approaches for the realization and integration of a monitoring system for temperature in multi-core systems based on Networks-on-Chip (NoCs) in combination with Dynamic Frequency Scaling (DFS) are investigated. Results show that both combinations using event-driven and time-driven forwarding more than double overall execution time and considerably reduce throughput of application data. Regarding performance of notification and reaction to temperature development event-driven forwarding clearly outperforms time-driven forwarding.
