Growing complexity of multiprocessor systems on chip (MP-SoC) requires future communication resources that can only be met by highly scalable architectures. Networks-on-Chip (NoCs) offer this scalability and other advantages like modularity, quality-of-service (QoS), possibly smaller area footprint and lower power dissipation. Although many papers describe the advantages of NoCs and describe techniques to apply NoCs on certain application domains, few have actually employed the complete design chain to make a netlist level implementation and area comparison , . This paper describes the application of the æthereal NoC to an existing bus-based MP-SoC design and an area comparison with the original interconnect structure down to netlist level.
