ULTRA LOW POWER-DATA DRIVEN NETWORKING PROCESSING DEVICE FOR AVOIDING OVERLOAD
The present invention is provided with: a data-driven processor (21) comprising at least a firing control (32) which determines whether or not firing conditions have been met by determining whether or not all packets necessary for instruction execution have been received when a packet in which data to be processed has been partitioned has been input, and a data processing unit (37) for performing processing corresponding to the packets transmitted from the firing control (32) if the firing conditions have been met
a power supply circuit (57) for supplying power to the data-driven processor (21)
and overload avoidance means (23) which, on the basis of current consumption (Iss) in the data-driven processor (21), refuses input of the packets to the data-driven processor (21) if a determination has been made that a data processing load in the data-driven processor (21) may reach an overloaded state in which the data processing may stall. Accordingly, power consumption in a networking system (S) is reduced.
