Network On Chip[edit]

Most real NoCs are mesosynchronous as opposed to asynchronous - neither of which is a requirement of being an NoC of course.

We should add some information about commercial products that use NoC, like Tilera's Tile64.

Multiple issues with article[edit]

1. Article is not wikified 2. There are no footnotes, just a pile of references with numbers that match with ... nothing 3. Sections are plagiarized from the sources. If these are written for Wikipedia, they should be run through Wikisource Penguinwithin (talk) 06:28, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

It's not plagiarized. The article gives due credit to the original source at the bottom: The original text can be found at http://www.sigda.org/newsletter/2006/060415.txt

Admittedly, maybe it should be placed somewhere it is better visible. 131.155.15.29 (talk) 14:30, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

--Rkg82 (talk) 12:48, 12 October 2010 (UTC)Update to commercial deployment of NoC technology--Rkg82 (talk) 12:48, 12 October 2010 (UTC) Reference to prototypes is completely out of date. At least one silicon-proven NoC was integrated on a video chip being sold in 2008 (Pixelworks), and currently (Oct 2010) a number of chips are being sold with commercially available NoC inside, both to equipement manufacturers and the general public. One example is the latest rabge of Epson Video projectors, launched in 2009-2010.

Still needs work on the dated issues. For example, I think one paper that is quoted is from 2001, which is hardly "emerging" any more. see doi 10.1145/378239.379045 http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=379045 W Nowicki (talk) 23:39, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Requested move 1[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was not moved. Capitalized Chip appears to be correct. --rgpk (comment) 18:12, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Network On ChipNetwork on a chip – Please put your reason for moving here. Tony (talk) 14:09, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

But I can live with Network on chip if there's objection. In my work with engineers' text, I've found the "a" far more common in this group of items, with the Lab on a chip the stand-out.

Per WP:MOSCAPS ("Wikipedia avoids unnecessary capitalization") and WP:TITLE, this is a generic, common term, not a propriety or commercial term, so the article title should be downcased. In addition, WP:MOSCAPS says that a compound item should not be upper-cased just because it is abbreviated with caps. Lowercase will match the formatting of related article titles, such as System on a chip.

As a side question, I'd have thought the hyphens were unnecessary in this cluster of terms (sister terms are hyphenated in the opening para here, for example). Tony (talk) 14:09, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Support – with or without "a", but lowercase, no hyphens. The hyphen are common in the adjective form, as in "network-on-a-chip approach" and "network-on-chip technology". But I agree we don't need them in the noun-form title or the lead sentence. Dicklyon (talk) 06:44, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
Yep, unless there's objection here over the next few days, I'll fix them up in the main texts in this cluster of articles. Tony (talk) 09:50, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
