Abstract: In this research, researchers propose a memory-efficient on-chip network architecture based router design. In addition to the resource utilization of router design, the high requirements of memories in router architecture design increases the network latency. To overcome such drawback, researchers have developed an optimized weighted scheduling methodology for router architecture and integrated it in the NI such that the network and memory latencies are significantly reduced. This proposed reliable network-on-chip router can reduce faults in both the router components and the reliability components in real time environment. The area overhead is also reduced by resource multiplexing due to the on-demand buffer assignment at each output port. The proposed work results average network latency(16%) and average memory utilization (22%).
