Abstract

Over the last decade, the communication architecture of SoCs has evolved from single shared bus systems to multi-bus systems. Today, state-of-the-art bus based systems, such as the AMBA AXI (http://www.arm.com/products/solutions/AMBAHomePage.html) or the STBUS platform (http://www.st.com/stonline/prodpres/dedicate/soc/cores/stbus.htm.) supports the instantiation of crossbar matrices, where multiple buses operate in parallel, providing a high bandwidth communication infrastructure. While methodologies that target the design of NoCs are required in the long run, providing design support for the state-of-the-art crossbar based bus designs pose an immediate and pressing problem.
