A Parametric Study of Scalable Interconnects on FPGAs
Abstract-- With the constantly increasing gate capacity of FPGAs, a single FPGA chip is able to employ large-scale applications. To connect a large number of computational nodes, NetworkOn-Chip (NoC), in which different flows share a point-to-point link, becomes advantageous in terms of scalability. Although fixed regular network infrastructures are only used in recent FPGAbased NoCs, the network topology can be optimized to fit the target application on FPGAs. In this paper, we investigate the suitable interconnects based on the typical implementation of NoC router with various number of wires per channel on FPGAs. In order to clearly illustrate the trade-off between network throughput and hardware amount for network components, we evaluate the amount of hardware for various networks, which are composed by routers with different port numbers, and their throughput using a flitlevel simulation. Evaluation results show that for small systems with 16 cores or less, a large router is advan...
