Mapping is a key issue in NoC system-level design process. The power consumption and delay of a NoC system are primary determined by the mapping result. Since NoC mapping is a NP-complete problem, which means it beyond the computation ability to obtain the global optimal solution if the size of problem is too large. Approaches in this area focuses on heuristic algorithms. In this paper, a new swarm-intelligence algorithm - Enhanced Chaos Discrete Artificial Bee Colony (ECDABC) algorithm is introduced to solve this problem, which carries out two-step optimization processes.
