During run-time varying workloads and/or constraints in embedded systems require run-time adaptively to provide a high degree of efficiency during any operation mode/scenario. Design time decisions can often only cover certain scenarios and fail in efficiency when hard-to-predict system scenarios occur. The authors are presenting the first approach of an adaptive on-chip communication scheme. It provides an adaptive routing/path allocation algorithm to meet a required level of QoS. In their architecture adaptive runtime links are established by re-assigning buffer blocks on demand.
