Abstract

This paper presents the design of a 64-PE foldedtorus intra-chip communication fabric used to provide guaranteed throughput in terms of dead- and live-lock free and in-order data delivery, which is suitable for NoC-based real-time processing applications. A test chip using the proposed intra-chip communication fabric designed to integrate 64 RISC-based processing elements is fabricated in 1P6M 0.13μm CMOS technology with 23mm2 die area. At room temperature, the measured peak power (all PE-tiles activated) of the test chip is 200mW@128MHz at 1.2Vcc. The intra-chip network consuming 9.4% the chip area and 18% of the total chip power can provide a maximum bisection bandwidth of 44.6Gb/s with an approximate energy per transported bit of 0.14 pJ/bit/hop.
