Several emerging application domains in scientific computing demand high computation throughputs to achieve tera-scale or higher performance. Dedicated centers hosting scientific computing tools on a few high-end servers could rely on hardware accelerator co-processors that contain multiple lightweight custom cores interconnected through an on-chip network. While Network-on-Chip (NoC) driven platforms have been studied in the context of accelerating individual applications, this paper studies the efficacy of NoC-based platforms to enhance overall computation throughput in the presence of several concurrently executing jobs.
