    2. Performance Analysis Performance Evaluation

    • Matrics used for Performance Analysis

      • Transport Mechanism

        • Wormhole Routing

      • Throughput

        • A metric to measure the rate at which message traffic can be sent across a communication fabric.

      • Latency

        • Refers to the length of time elapsed bet. The injection of a msg. header at source node and the reception of tail at the destination.

      • Energy

        • Energy dissipation across network due to transportation of msg and activities inside network switches.

      • Area

        • The amount of area used by an interconection network.


    2 1 performance analysis in 3d mesh based nocs
    2.1 Performance Analysis in 3D Mesh-Based NoCs Performance Evaluation

    • Throughput

      • Principally related to two factors : number of physical links, average number of hops.

    For mash-based NoC no of links is defined as :

    In 8x8 2D Mesh NoC it yeilds 112 links.

    In 4x4x4 3D Mesh NoC it yeilds 144 links.

    For mash-based NoC no of hopes is defined as :

    In 8x8 2D Mesh NoC average hop counts is 5.33

    In 4x4x4 3D Mesh NoC average hop counts is 3.81

    With Decrease of hop counts increase in throughput is expected

    Contd.


    • Energy Performance Evaluation

      • Depends on energy dissipated by the switch blocks & inter switch wire segments.

      • With more packets traversing the network, power will increase

      • The energy dissipated per flit per hope is given by

    • Latency

      • With lower hop count in 3D Arch decrease in latency is expected.

    Smaller hop counts, lower packet energy

    • Area

      • For 3D NoC area per switch increase with more ports in 3D NoCs.

      • In ciliated structure as no of switches reduces it reduces overall switch area.


    3 experimental results
    3. Experimental Results Performance Evaluation

    • Experiment setup

      • Cycle-accurate network simulator used that can also simulate dTDMA buses.

      • Flit-driven and uses wormhole routing

      • In order to acquire energy and area characteristics, the n/w switches, dTDMA arbiter, and FIFO buffers were modeled in VHDL



    Conclusions
    Conclusions Performance Evaluation

    • 3D Network structures provide a better performance compared to traditional 2D NoC architectures.

    • The mesh-based architectures show significant performance gains in terms of throughput, latency ad energy dissipation with small area overhead
