This paper proposes a method of improving the scalability of checkpoint recovery for network-on-chip based systems in terms of checkpointing latency and memory requirements. The improvement considers the broadcasts implied in the checkpointing protocol. It combines the reduction of the number of broadcasts in the checkpoint synchronization protocol with the use of a more efficient broadcast method at network level.
