Abstract

This paper presents an introduction to Network-on-Chip technology in general with focus on Wireless Network-on-Chip in particular. The regular metal wire interconnect is introduced with an immersive explanation of its issues and drawbacks which have resulted in alternative architectures. Wireless Network-on-Chip (WiNoC) is among the most promising scalable interconnection architectures for future generation NoCs. WiNoC is considered as an emerging paradigm to design high bandwidth and energy efficient communication backbone for many-core systems. Therefore, this survey focuses solely on the WiNoC technology, its architecture, reliability, different advantages, challenges as well as the different approaches that have been proposed in order to overcome its limitations. Lastly, a brief comparison among WiNoCs and other emerging NoC technologies such as 3D-NoCs and Photonic NoCs are introduced.
