Network on chip is a scalable and flexible communication architecture for the design of core based System-on-Chip. Communication performance of a NOC heavily depends on routing algorithm. XY routing algorithm is distributed deterministic routing algorithm. Odd-Even (OE) routing algorithm is distributed adaptive routing algorithm with deadlock-free ability. DyAD combines the advantages of both deterministic and adaptive routing schemes. Key metrics which determines best performance for routing algorithms for Network-on-Chip architectures are Minimum Latency, Minimum Power and Maximum Throughput.
