Introduction.- Existing Transient and Permanent Error Management in NoCs.- Adaptive Error Control Coding at Datalink Layer.- Transient and Permanent Link Errors Co-Management.- Dual-Layer Cooperative Error Control for Transient Error.- A Flexible Parallel Simulator for Networks-on-Chip with Error Control.- Conclusions and Future Directions.
This book addresses reliability and energy efficiency of on-chip networks using cooperative error control. It describes an efficient way to construct an adaptive error control codec capable of tracking noise conditions and adjusting the error correction strength at runtime. Methods are also presented to tackle joint transient and permanent error correction, exploiting the redundant resources already available on-chip. A parallel and flexible network simulator is also introduced, which facilitates examining the impact of various error control methods on network-on-chip performance.
Includes a complete survey of error control methods for reliable networks-on-chip, evaluated for reliability, energy and performance metricsPresents state-of-the-art solutions to address simultaneously reliability, energy and performance Provides hardware implementation details of error control in networks-on-chip Provides details of a parallel simulator and corresponding simulation setup to achieve the reported results
