3 © System-on-Chip Group, CSE-IMM, DTU 3 System-level Analysis Ω Consequences of different application decomposition and mappings of tasks to processors – software or hardware Ω Effects of different middleware – scheduling, synchronization and resource allocation policies Ω Effects of different network topologies and communication protocols.

4 © System-on-Chip Group, CSE-IMM, DTU 4 Outline Ω Motivation Ω Modeling of Communication  Properties of Networks-on-Chip (NoC) Ω Example Ω Design Space Exploration  Timing Aware and others Ω Conclusions

6 © System-on-Chip Group, CSE-IMM, DTU 6 System Analysis Methodology Choose hardware Map tasks Choose communication architecture Evaluate the performance and cost Iterate until performance and cost are met Optimal System!! Specifically for NoC

7 © System-on-Chip Group, CSE-IMM, DTU 7 Networked Multi-processors Ω Data transfers between processors are considered as message tasks Ω The network can be considered as a communication processor on which message tasks are scheduled Ω The network provides,  Topology = resource allocator  Protocol = scheduler
