ABSTRACT
In olden days, the communication between different IP cores in System-on-Chip (SoC) was point-to-point communication. Due to this point-to-point communication the interconnection wires between IP cores were more in number. To overcome these disadvantages a new SoC paradigm introduced. i.e. Network-on-Chip (NoC). Network-on-chip (NoC) architecture is regarded as a solution for future on-chip interconnects. However, the performance advantages of conventional NoC architectures are limited by the long latency and high power consumption due to multi-hop long distance communication among processing elements. To solve these limitations, we employed GA Technique on-chip communication as express links for transferring data so that transfer latency can be reduced. Network-on-chip (NoC) is an approach to design communication subsystem between IP cores in a System-on-Chip (SoC). This paper presents a genetic algorithm-based automated design technique that synthesizes an application specific NoC topology and routes the communication traces on the interconnection network. Genetic Algorithm based technique operates on the system-level floorplan of the system-on-chip (SoC) and accounts for the power consumption in the physical links and the routers. The design technique solves a multi-objective problem of minimizing the power consumption and the router resource.
