A Worst Case Performance Model for TDM Virtual Circuit in NoCs
In Network-on-Chip (NoC), Time-Division-Multiplexing (TDM) Virtual Circuit (VC) is well recognized as being capable to provide guaranteed services in both latency and bandwidth. The authors propose a method of modeling TDM based VC by using Network Calculus. They derive a tight upper bound of end-to-end delay and buffer requirement for individual VC. The performance analysis using Latency-Rate server is also presented in comparison with their Performance model for TDM Virtual Circuit in NoCs (Pemvin).They conducted experiments on comparing Pemvin to the Latency-Rate server model.
