Recently Network-on-Chip (NoC) technique has been proposed as a promising solution for on-chip interconnection network. However, different interface specification of integrated components raises a considerable difficulty for adopting NoC techniques. In this paper, the authors present a generic architecture for Network Interface (NI) and associated wrappers for a networked processor array (NoC based multiprocessor SoC) in order to allow systematic design flow for accelerating the design cycle. Case studies for memory and turbo decoder IPs show the feasibility and efficiency of their approach.
