Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents the aEqualized routing algorithm: a novel algorithm for the Spidergon Network on Chip. AEqualized combines the well known aFirst and aLast algorithms proposed in literature obtaining an optimized use of the channels of the network. This optimization allows to reduce the number of channels actually implemented on the chip while maintaining similar performances achieved by the two basic algorithms. In the second part of this paper, authors propose a variation on the Spidergon's router architecture that enhances the performance of the network especially when the aEqualized routing algorithm is adopted.
