Networks-on-Chip (NoCs) have emerged as a promising on-chip inter-connects for future multi/many-core architectures as NoCs are able to scale communication links with the growing number of cores. In this paper, the authors present an adaptive route allocation algorithm which provides a required level of QoS (guaranteed bandwidth) coupled with an adaptive buffer assignment scheme which reassigns buffer blocks up-demand. In addition, the adaptivity requires a comprehensive, hardly invasive, runtime discernibility infrastructure, i.e., using supervising components, in order to collect data on the system put forward.
