With the significant increase in the number of processing elements in NoC-based MPSoCs, communication becomes, increasingly, a critical resource for performance gains and QoS guarantees. The main gap observed in the NoC-based MPSoCs literature is the runtime adaptive techniques to meet QoS. In the absence of such techniques, the system user must statically define the resource distribution to each real-time task. In this paper, the authors investigate the runtime adaptation of the NoC resources, according to the QoS requirements of each application running in the MPSoC.
