The emergence of power efficient heterogeneous Network-on-Chips (NoCs) presents an intriguing challenge in NoC reliability, particularly due to aging degradation. To effectively tackle this challenge, this work presents a dynamic routing algorithm that exploits the architecture level criticality of network packets while routing. The authors' proposed framework uses a wearout monitoring system (to track NBTI effect) and architecture-level criticality information to create a routing policy that restricts aging degradation with minimal impact on system level performance.
