Background and Objectives: Thermal problem is one of the main challenges in 3D on-chip networks. Inappropriate traffic distribution, poor heat dissipation, cooling restriction for layers away from the chip heatsink are the main reasons for this problem.
Methods: This paper proposes a new intelligent routing algorithm called (Int-TAR) to solve these problems. Int-TAR applies a routing for managing the heat in 3D on-chip networks dynamically. The main idea behind Int-TAR is to save the past states of the system and, according to these states, predict the future behavior of the network and perform routing dynamically. It is done by the threshold of routers dynamically based on the current status of the routers.
Result: The simulation results show that Int-TAR decreases the temperature of the network by 13% and improves performance efficiently.
Conclusion: The proposed idea shows the better benchmark for the thermal problem in 3D on-chip network. Also, the higher memory for storing the past state of the network can make accurate and the further performance for the network.

Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering Innovations (JECEI) welcomes letters to the editor for the post-publication discussions and corrections which allows debate post publication on its site, through the Letters to Editor. Letters pertaining to manuscript published in JECEI should be sent to the editorial office of JECEI within three months of either online publication or before printed publication, except for critiques of original research. Following points are to be considering before sending the letters (comments) to the editor.

[1] Letters that include statements of statistics, facts, research, or theories should include appropriate references, although more than three are discouraged.

[2] Letters that are personal attacks on an author rather than thoughtful criticism of the author’s ideas will not be considered for publication.

[3] Letters can be no more than 300 words in length.

[4] Letter writers should include a statement at the beginning of the letter stating that it is being submitted either for publication or not.

[5] Anonymous letters will not be considered.

[6] Letter writers must include their city and state of residence or work.

[7] Letters will be edited for clarity and length.
