Multi-Processor Systems-on-Chip (MPSoC) are required to fulfill the performance demand of modern real-life embedded applications. These MPSoCs are employing Network-on-Chip (NoC) for reasons of efficiency and scalability. Additionally, these systems need to support run-time reconfiguration of their components to cater to dynamically changing demands of the system. Designing and programming such systems for real-life applications prove to be a major challenge. This paper demonstrates the designing of reconfigurable NoC-based MPSoC and programming it for real-life applications. The NoC is reconfigured at run-time to support different combinations of multiple applications at different times.
