NEXT (Practical Bus Protocols on IP Blocks)
Do we want to model every contention point and queuing detail ?
Use a high-level model: Treat the NoC just as a square array corresponding
to the floor plan of the chip and in each entry we hold a running
average local utilisation.
- Add delay penalty to traversing transaction based on 1/(1-p),
- Log local energy consumption proportional to delay,
- Target routing protocol can be used unmodified or skipped.
- Transactions may be out of order if using large quantum LT model.
- Deadlock may be missed ?
