Systems-on-Chip (SoC) architectures have been shifting from single-core to multi-core solutions, and they are at present evolving towards many-core ones. Network-on-Chip (NoC) is considered as a promising interconnection scheme for many-core SoCs since it offers better scalability than traditional bus-based interconnection. In this paper, the authors have developed a fast simulator of NoC architectures using QEMU and SystemC. QEMU is an open-source CPU emulator which is widely used in many simulation platforms such as Android emulator.
