Abstract: In NoC (Network on chip), the power consumption is major issue while designing. In NoC router, conventional input buffer consume more energy. The paper is focused on the energy-efficient design of 8-bit input buffers, which use the characteristic of transmission of data on NoC that has probability of transmitting a zero signal is more than that of transmitting a signal one. The design of energy efficient 8-bit input buffer reduces the power consumption by 48% and the chip area 29% with calculating the gates count as compared with conventional 8-bit input buffer by using 65 nm cmos technology in simulation.
Keywords: Network on Chip, NoC Router, Input Buffer.

Scope of the Article: Network Modelling and Simulation
