An OFDMA Based RF Interconnect for Massive Multi-core Processors

Abstract : A paradigm shift is apparent in Chip Multiprocessor (CMP) design, as the new performance bottleneck is becoming communication rather than computation. It is widely provisioned that number of cores on a single chip will reach thousands in a decade. Thus, new high rate interconnects such as optical or RF have been proposed by various researchers. However, these interconnect structures fail to provide essential requirements of heterogeneous on-chip traffic; bandwidth reconfigurability and broadcast support with a low complex design. In this paper we investigate the feasibility of a new Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) RF interconnect for the first time to the best of our knowledge. In addition we provide a novel dynamic bandwidth arbitration and modulation order selection policy, that is designed regarding the bimodal on-chip packets. The proposed approach decreases the average latency up to 3.5 times compared to conventional static approach.
