Research studies have demonstrated the feasibility and advantages of Network-on-Chip (NoC) over traditional bus-based architectures but have not focused on compatibility communication standards. This paper describes a number of issues faced when designing a VC-neutral NoC, i.e. compatible with standards such as AHB 2.0, AXI, VCI, OCP, and various other proprietary protocols, and how a layered approach to communication helps solve these issues.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
