Abstract

Study of Network-on-Chip (NoC) systems requires simulators capable of handling their unique characteristics. Toward this objective, a set of simulation models are developed based on NoC first principles and the DEVS modeling formalism. The models constitute the NoC-DEVS simulator, a domain-specific DEVS-Suite simulator. A representative prototypical NoC mesh-based system is modeled using processing elements, network interfaces, switches, and links. The same NoC example system is also modeled in Noxim simulator which is developed using SystemC. The NoC-DEVS simulator is evaluated against the Noxim simulator in terms of delay and throughput performance metrics. Some basic capabilities of these two simulators are briefly compared. A sketch of future research directions is also provided.
