Abstract

In conventional hybrid PNoC systems, the end-to end optical data transfer is accompanied with electrical control functions including path-setup, acknowledgment, and tear-down. These functions directly a ect the performance and power characteristics of these circuit-switching based systems. In this paper, we propose a novel hybrid PNoC system, named PHENIC-II. 1 Thanks to the adopted non-blocking photonic switch and light-weight electronic router, PHENIC-II is capable of alleviating the congestion in the electronic control layer which is considered as the main source of latency and power overhead in hybrid PNoC systems. From the performance evaluation, we demonstrate that the proposed system has a better performance and low energy dissipation when compared to the previously proposed systems.
