In this paper, the authors present a power and performance multi-objective Tabu search based technique for designing application specific Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures. The topology generation approach uses an automated technique to incorporate floorplan information and attain accurate values for wirelength and area. The method also takes dynamic effects such as contention into account, allowing performance constraints to be incorporated during topology synthesis. A new method for contention analysis is presented in this paper, which makes use of power and performance objectives using a Layered Queuing Network (LQN) contention model.
