For faster computational chips, manufacturers have been increasing the chips’ computational power by giving them additional cores. For instance – a typical chip may feature six or eight cores, but only one pair of core can work at a time, this means there is a limitation to chips, even if a chip has 100 to 1000 cores. An associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT, Li-Shiuan Peh has been looking forward at the cores to communicate in a similar way that computer with Internet does. The research team has been working on techniques to increase computational speed with low power consumption. By transmitting information into ‘packets’ and each core would have its own router, enabling sending packet down any of several paths, depending on the condition of the network as a whole. Peh and the colleagues will be showcasing this paper called ‘summarizing 10 years of research’ on such ‘networks on chip.’
