Abstract:Increasing the computational power of future System-on-Chips (SoCs) is not possible by increasing the frequency of a processor, because power consumption will become a major issue. Energy efficient systems increase the number of cores to reach higher performance levels to form a multi-core embedded system: a Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC). This flexible type of system can by customized for specific applications by changing the software running on it. At Th University of Twente, a prototype MPSoC has been developed specifically for real-time applications, like Software-Defined Radios (SDRs). This class of applications place strict requirements: of a guaranteed minimum bandwidth and a maximum bound on the latency of communication between tasks running on different cores. communication within the platform is performed over a connectionless Network-on-Chip (NoC), which should allow a small implementation. However, strict guarantees are harder to accomplish in a connectionless network compared to a connection-oriented network.
