Bandwidth-Aware Application Mapping for NoC-Based MPSoCs

Network-on-Chip (NoC) has been introduced to meet the communication challenges for on-chip multi-processors and the bandwidth of NoC takes a significant role in area and power consumption of overall system. In order to minimize the bandwidth requirement of NoC, a mapping method is proposed to schedule the tasks of an application onto NoC architecture. More precisely, given the application task graph of a specific application, an ACO-based (Ant Colony Optimization) algorithm is used to map the tasks onto the NoC, such that the bandwidth requirement of NoC is minimized.
