In this paper, the authors present three novel input buffer schemes for systems with network on chip. These proposed buffer schemes are based on a self-compacting buffer, and can provide larger available buffer space per physical channel for communicating applications. These schemes outperform existing approaches. DAMQ has similar performance using only sixty three percent of the buffer size that is used in traditional implementation for NoCs. DAMQ provides an excellent technique to optimize buffer management, and provides a good throughput when the network has a larger load. In addition, they also have better utilization of the available buffer space.
