In a system-on-chip (SoC) design, and particularly in a multi-processor system-on-chip (MPSoC) design, one of the main issues is the interconnection among components, from point-to-point to 3D network-on-chips (NoC). The decision of which kind of interconnection to apply can be based on power consumption, performance, cost and design cycle time. The increasing complexity of applications directly impacts the complexity of on-chip communication, demanding modelling and simulation of new design strategies to optimise design parameters.
For this special issue we invite original research related to on-chip communication theory and its applications. Both theoretical and applied papers on all aspects of design are welcome.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Communication-centric design flow
Bus-based communication architectures
Current design approaches
Physical and electrical analysis
Models for performance exploration
Design and synthesis of communication architectures
Dynamic bus reconfiguration
Bus encoding techniques
Interface synthesis and optimisation
Secure on-chip communication infrastructure
Custom bus design
Physical design trends
Communication architectures for multi-processor system-on-chips
On-chip communication in 3D architectures
Mapping and scheduling tasks
Reliability and fault-tolerance
