A Network-on-Chip (NOC) is used in SOC to make interconnection inside. Due to the changing of communication patterns, the aim of this paper is to the design reconfigurable processor and Reconfigurable Crossbar Switch for NOC Routers (RCS-NR) capable of adapting topologies on demand. Due to the dynamic changing of communication patterns, the goal of this paper is to present the design of Reconfigurable Processor (RP) and Reconfigurable Crossbar Switch for NoC Routers (RCS-NR) capable of adapting topologies on demand. RP and RCS-NR has an optimized architecture, similar area and lower energy consumption (up to 87.41%) relative to a traditional crossbar switch. Furthermore, RCS-NR and reconfigurable processor based NOC router has a similar area, more efficient in energy consumption than a conventional NOC.
