|TITLE||Specification and visualisation of the interconnection network of a mobile GPU|

Because of improved manufacturing technology, the number of components that can be included on a single chip is increasing over time. One efficient way to connect the components is through a packet switched network, a Network on Chip. Such a network is defined by many parameters. An effective way to explore the large design space is by simulation. In this project, we have developed a network description language to define the network of a mobile GPU. As part of this process, we have surveyed several available simulators. We have implemented support for the language in a mobile GPU simulator. We have also implemented a script that outputs a visual representation of networks defined in the network description language. The purpose of the project has been to develop tools to make Network on Chip modeling faster, easier, more flexible, and less error prone. The result was evaluated through both qualitative and quantitative assessment.
