DescriptionBy lowering the number of vertical connections in fully connected 3D networks-on-chip (NoCs), partially connected 3D NoCs (PC-3DNoCs) help alleviate reliability and fabrication issues. This paper proposes a novel, adaptive congestion- and energy-aware elevator-selection scheme called AdEle to improve the traffic distribution in PC-3DNoCs. AdEle employs an offline multi-objective simulated-annealing-based algorithm to find good elevator subsets and an online elevator selection policy to enhance elevator selection during routing. Compared to the state-of-the-art techniques under different real-application traffics and configuration scenarios, AdEle improves the network latency by 14.9% on average (up to 21.4%) with less than 10.5% energy
consumption overhead.
