Over the past decade, system-on-chip (SoC) designs have evolved to address the ever increasing complexity of applications, fueled by the era of digital convergence. Improvements in process technology have effectively shrunk board-level components so they can be integrated on a single chip. New on-chip communication architectures have been designed to support all inter-component communication in a SoC design. These communication architecture fabrics have a critical impact on the power consumption, performance, cost and design cycle time of modern SoC designs. As application complexity strains the communication backbone of SoC designs, academic and industrial RaD efforts and dollars are increasingly focused on communication architecture design. This book is a comprehensive reference on concepts, research and trends in on-chip communication architecture design. It will provide readers with a comprehensive survey, not available elsewhere, of all current standards for on-chip communication architectures. KEY FEATURES * A definitive guide to on-chip communication architectures, explaining key concepts, surveying research efforts and predicting future trends * Detailed analysis of all popular standards for on-chip communication architectures * Comprehensive survey of all research on communication architectures, covering a wide range of topics relevant to this area, spanning the past several years, and up to date with the most current research efforts * Future trends that with have a significant impact on research and design of communication architectures over the next several years[31] PrimeCellAr AXI Configurable Interconnect (PL301) Technical Reference Manual, http:// www.arm.com/products/solutions/AXISystemComponents.html.
