Executive Summary

Since the late 1990's, the trend of integrated circuit design has been integrating several system components or IP blocks, such as processors and memories, on one chip. This is referred to the concept of System on Chip (SoC). However, with the increase of system scales in SoC systems, some problems such as inter-connection communication, scalability, system throughput and response time of the system have become the bottleneck of the system performance. To address these problems, researchers have proposed the concept of Network on Chip (NoC).
