UniMap is a Unified Framework for the evaluation and optimization of application mapping algorithms for Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures, developed by me, Ciprian Radu, researcher at "Lucian Blaga" University of Sibiu, Romania. The main benefits of this framework are:
- the comparison of algorithms on the same NoC design;
- the evaluation of application mapping algorithms' performance, on different NoC architectures (e.g.: since such algorithms are mainly evaluated on 2D mesh NoCs?, other topologies may also be tested);
- the potential optimization of an algorithm on a particular NoC;
- the possibility of identifying which is the most suitable application mapping algorithm for a specific NoC design.
You are welcome to use UniMap in your own research. The only requirement is to cite my PhD thesis, for which I created this framework.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding this framework.
