  • To address peak power concerns in networks-on-chip (NoCs), dynamic peak power management schemes that handle varying power requirements are essential. Previous schemes use deterministic peak power budget management techniques that do not scale or adapt efficiently to changing power budget requirements. Using a non-deterministic and independent approach, this research proposes SAPP, a Scalable and Adaptable Peak Power management technique for NoCs. Evaluation of SAPP on uniform and non-uniform varying injection loads demonstrates flit latency and effective throughput improvements averaging 47% and 36%, respectively. Efficient power budget utilization makes SAPP an ideal technique for peak power management in NoCs under varying traffic patterns. Copyright 2007 ACM.
