In this paper, the authors propose a hierarchical addressing scheme for Network-on-Chip applications. This scheme will facilitate a user to transmit a lesser number of overhead bits while transmitting a message to some other user. The number of overhead bits required will be dependent on the distance (in terms of number of routing nodes or routers) from source IP to destination IP. They also define a channel utility factor and show how the overall utilization of the channel increases with this scheme.
