GMCB: An industrial benchmark for use in real-time mixed-criticality networks-on-chip

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper specifies and describes GMCB (Generic Mixed-Criticality
Benchmark), a benchmark industrial application model for testing
real-time mixed-criticality multicore systems incorporating a
network-on-chip (NoC). Task execution information such as periods,
latencies and criticality levels is specified. The communication
patterns between the tasks are defined, incorporating message sizes
transmitted between the source and destination nodes. Cycle-accurate
NoC simulation is used to evaluate the performance of the GMCB
model, evaluating the communication latencies encountered under
various task mappings. The behaviour of the application under a recent
mixed-criticality NoC protocol is considered.
