Device centric Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) have shown to be applicable in the automation industry for interconnecting manufacturing devices and enterprise systems, thus, establishing comprehensive, heterogeneous service architecture. A similar scenario can also be found in the domain of integrated circuits where a growing number of components are being interconnected by a network inside a single chip. Thus, service-oriented concepts seem promising to be used for the abstract composition of on-chip components. However, tight constraints on power consumption and performance have to be considered when a compound service shall be executed.
