The emerging platform-based design paradigm poses enormous challenges to conceptualizing, implementing, verifying and programming today's complex System on Chip (SoC) design. Network-on-Chip (NoC) architecture provides a scalable, high performance and robust infrastructure for on-chip communication. Perfect Difference Network (PDN) based on the mathematical notion of Perfect Difference Set as an asymptotically optimal method for connecting IP cores with network diameter D=2 so that any IP core is reachable from any other IP core in one or maximum two hops. In this paper, the authors have proposed the Network on Chip architecture based on the mathematical notion of Perfect Difference Network (PDN), which is referred as Chordal Ring PDN topology for Network on Chip architecture.
