More and more complex and larger System-on-Chips (SoCs) are getting developed as a result of increase in chip density following Moore's law. Advanced SoCs have in their shelf significantly noticeable communication mechanisms. NoC (Network-on-Chip) has solved the scalability problems to a larger extent compared to bus based interconnect. NoC has been providing a back bone infrastructure for SoCs since long. Among the available communication matrices, NoC has helped tremendously in the communication performance enhancement. NoC research majorly involves work on packet switching, though at the same time circuit switching assures high communication rates and predictable communication latencies.
