DSNoC is a workshop devoted to Diagnostic Services in Network-on-Chips. DSNoC’11 is the fifth edition of this workshop and is organized in conjunction with the 48th ACM/EDAC/IEEE Design Automation Conference (DAC).
Network-on-Chips (NoCs) are settling as a new on-chip communication paradigm. Diagnostic services, such as test, debug, and on-line monitoring, are becoming important factors in designing next-generation NoC-based systems. The NoC infrastructure itself requires diagnostic services, and can also be used to support those for the entire system. Although significant research has been done in NoC design, there are many open and pressing issues regarding diagnostic services. The focus of this workshop is to explore them and their implications on system design.
The workshop program will contain keynote and invited talks, paper and poster sessions as well as a panel discussion. This year's focus will be set on test, debug and on-line monitoring of 3D Network-on-Chips.
