Modification of the BookSim simulator for modeling networks-on-chip based on two dimensional circulant topologies
In this paper, a review of various high-level models of networks-on-chip, their performance capabilities, and characteristics was carried out. As a result, the BookSim simulator was chosen. Application of circulant topologies for implementation of communication subsystems in networks-on-chip (NoCs) as alternatives to other regular topology was proved. The process of modifying the BookSim simulator described allowed high-level modeling of NoCs with any topologies (including two‑dimensional circulants), as well as testing new routing algorithms in such networks.
