Pegasus is NetSpeed’s last level cache IP that is designed to boost system performance in conjunction with Gemini.
Can be configured as coherent cache that is accessible only to coherent traffic
Architectural exploration platform with inbuilt performance analysis
Configurable ports, cache capacity, cache associativity and ECC options
Can be configured as memory cache that is accessible by all traffic: coherent and non-coherent
Pegasus when used along with Gemini can be used to dramatically reduce critical latencies in the SoC as well as improve system throughput.
Pegasus along with Gemini allows architects significant control of their design by supporting a multitude of flexible cache hierarchies.
Pegasus can be configured to operate as a coherent cache to reduce latency for coherent cache accesses. By removing unnecessary lookups, the performance of the Last level caches are improved and dynamic power consumption is reduced.
Pegasus can be configured as a memory cache to give traffic with good locality bandwidth increase. Memory cache does not require the flushing of the cache and will speed up software-coherency use cases and improve memory bandwidth during transitions.
Cache hierarchy connectivity can be created to have redundant paths so that the LLC can be entirely disabled and traffic can be routed directly to memory instead. This allows the entire LLC to be powered off and traffic to take a more direct route in the network.
Based on system requirements such as cache capacity and total coherent bandwidth, architects can add multiple instance of Pegasus, and customizes them before placing them in the interconnect. The benefits that Pegasus brings are:
Support for industry standard IP protocols, and custom proprietary protocols.
Robust, configurable end-to-end QoS schemes: Bandwidth allocation, strict non-blocking priority levels, rate limiters.
Up to 32 virtual network support in the NoC; Virtual channels are allocated to ensure QoS, deadlock avoidance and bandwidth intent satisfaction.
Adapts to floorplan and uses placement information to automate timing closure and thus creates a design that is ready for first-pass timing closure.
Support for multiple power domains, voltage domains through industry standard power control interface to support management of power state transitions.
Customize every component of the interconnect from IP interface to routers to topology and interface links using NocStudio.
Graph theory based approach and formal techniques to ensure an application level deadlock-free interconnect solution.
Sophisticated multi-tiered security and firewall support.
Integrated performance simulator that empowers architects to understand the tradeoffs among power, performance, and area with real-time feedback.
Integrated architectural exploration platform simulates various application use-cases and industry benchmarks.
Optimize either memory sub-systems and complete SoC systems using end-to-end bandwidth, latency and power tradeoff metrics.
Powerful data analytics tools that provide insights on the performance and power bottlenecks in the system.
