Now, I have not written a new post for a while… I was thinking about it and I realized that while we have been looking at tools, teaching materials, calls for papers, etc., we have not looked at funding. How much money is placed on NoC research? And where does the money go? So, I did a quick search on NSF award advanced-search. I used the following Keyword: “NoC” “on-chip” “network-on-chip” “networks-on-chip” “interconnection network”. The search returned 264 awards. More than half of the results are not really related to NoCs, but other than that the rough distribution is:
Less than or equal $50,000 (5)
Between $50,001 – $100,000 (11)
Between $100,001 – $500,000 (211)
Between $500,001 – $1,000,000 (22)
More than $1,000,000 (7)
If we click on Refine Search by state, we can see the number of awards by state. Here are the top 5 “lion share”s 🙂 :
