Objectives: To discover the impact of network parameters on power consumption in Networks on Chip (NoCs). Methods: Network on Chip (NoC) has been introduced as a solution for System on Chip (SoC) communication demands. Power consumption becomes a significant component in the NoCs due to the advanced VLSI technology. Findings: In this paper we compare the effect of network parameters such as number of nodes, size of packet length and number of virtual channels on power dissipation in NoCs. Link and total power consumption of NoC with different network parameters with and without using low power encoding algorithm is analyzed. Application/Improvements: A comprehensive evaluation has been accomplished to assess the effect of network parameters in the absence and presence of low power encoding approach on power dissipation in NoCs.
Keywords: Low Power Encoding, Network on Chip, Number of Node, Packet Length, Number of Virtual Channel, Power Consumption.
