Modern computing systems for vision have to support advanced image applications. They involve several heterogeneous pixel streams and they have to respect hard timing and area constraints. To face those challenges, an adaptable ring-based interconnection Network-on-Chip (NoC) has been recently proposed. This NoC is based on a new router architecture, with a dynamically adaptable internal datapath, which allows handling of multiple parallel pixel streams. An original datapath adaptation control is proposed by combining instructions and pixel data to be processed in a single packet. Timing performance and area occupation are evaluated on an FPGA prototype.
