High performance, reliability, transient and permanentfault-tolerance, and low energy consumption are majorobjectives of Networks-on-Chip (NoCs). Since,different applications impose various communicationrequirements in NoCs, a number of research studieshave revealed that the performance advantages ofrouting schemes are more noticeable on powerconsumption under different traffic patterns. However,the power consumption issues of NoCs have not beenthoroughly investigated in the presence of faultyregions. To the best of our knowledge, this research isthe first attempt to examine the effects of most populartraffic patterns (i.e., Uniform, Local, and Hot-Spot) onpower consumption of NoCs in the presence ofpermanent faults.
