A Learning-based Approach to the Automated Design of MPSoC Networks


Many embedded computing platforms are highly specialised towards a given task and, consequently, sacrifice generality for high performance and energy efficiency at low cost. It is commonly accepted that integrating multiple processor cores on the same chip is the most promising way of delivering a high level of processing power under tight energy and cost constraints. Whereas the customisation of individual processing elements to particular tasks such as DSP or multimedia functions is a well-studied problem, the specialisation of application-specific on-chip and off-chip interconnects between processing elements has been largely neglected.

We aim to improve the on-chip interconencts through the use of machine learning techniques, so that we can quickly and accurately map an application onto an optimal interconnect to optimize the performance of the application in terms of runtime, energy consumption, or both. We present an initial study of this methodology applied to a small MPSoC design, validating our approach.
