BIOS: A New Efficient Routing Algorithm for Network on Chip
Source: Islamic Azad University
The performance of Network-on-Chip (NoC) largely depends on the underlying routing techniques, which have two constituencies: output selection and input selection. Previous research on routing techniques for NoC has focused on the improvement of output selection. In this paper a novel routing algorithm for network on chip, which called BIOS, is presented. BIOS improves both input and output selection. In fact, BIOS is based on the best input and output selection. Simulation results with different traffic patterns show that the new routing algorithm (BIOS) achieves significant better performance than the other deterministic and adaptive routing algorithms.
