The fundamental unit of building a Network-on-Chip (NoC) is the router; it directs the packets according to a routing algorithm to the desired host. In this paper, a router is designed using Verilog language and implemented on Spartan 3E FPGA with the help of Integrated software environment (ISE10.1). The utilization of the Spartan 3E resources is excellent (for example the number of slices required doesn't exceed 3%). After that a (2×2) mesh topology and a (2x2) torus topology network is designed and implemented using FPGA. An example is applied on the designed Network-on-Chip (NoC) which validates the design successfully.
