NOCS 2014

  • The International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS) is the premier event dedicated to interdisciplinary research on on-chip communication technology, architecture, design methods and applications. NOCS aims at bringing together scientists and engineers working on NoC innovations from inter-related research communities, including computer architecture, networking, circuits and systems, embedded systems, and design automation.

    EMBEDDED TUTORIAL:
    OpenSoC: A Flexible, Parameterizable, Open NoC Generation Tool

    When: September 17th, 2014

      Organizers:
      Farzad Fatollahi-Fard - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
      David Donofrio - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
      George Michelogiannakis - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

      The goal of this tutorial is to educate the NoC community on OpenSoC Fabric, an ongoing project to create an open source network-on-chip generator capable of creating a synthesizable network for connecting processors, memory and I/O devices. We will provide attendees with a virtual machine preloaded with all the necessary tools and will then guide them on how to build their own networks; producing both a functional C++ model and synthesizable Verilog. We will highlight the new approaches we took, and teach users how to use the infrastructure and tailor it to their application. This tutorial is aimed towards researchers, experienced and new, who are looking for evaluation infrastructures for their research ideas, especially for future largescale chips.
