NIRGAM v2.0 is now available for download. Click here for downloading the latest version.

NIRGAM is a systemC based discrete event, cycle accurate simulator for research in Network on Chip(NoC). It provides substantial support to experiment with NoC design in terms of routing algorithms and applications on various topologies.
Current Capabilities:
  1. Topology
    • 2-D Mesh
    • 2-D Torus
  2. Switching Mechanism
    • Wormhole
  3. Routing Algorithms
    • Deterministic XY
    • Adaptive Odd-Even(OE)
    • Source Routing
  4. Applications
    • Source (sender)
    • Sink (reciever)
    • Traffic Generator
      • Constant Bit Rate
      • Bursty
      • Trace-based
  5. Plug-in support for applications
  6. Plug-in support for routers
Configurable NoC parameters:
  • Topology size (m x n)
  • Clock frequency
  • Buffer depth
  • Flit size
  • Virtual channels

NIRGAM is a collaborative research between Electronic Systems Design group, School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton UK and Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Malaviya National Institute of Technology, Jaipur India.
This research was funded by EPSRC(UK) grant EP/C512804/1.
