This paper introduces the Quarc NoC, a novel NoC architecture inspired by the Spidergon NoC. The Quarc scheme significantly outperforms the Spidergon NoC through balancing the traffic which is the result of the modifications applied to the topology and the routing elements.The proposed architecture is highly efficient in performing collective communication operations including broadcast and multicast. We present the topology, routing discipline and switch architecture for the Quarc NoC and demonstrate the performance with the results obtained from discrete event simulations.
