Abstract: Since the introduction of chip-multiprocessor systems, the number of integrated cores has been steady growing and workload applications have been adapted to exploit the increasing parallelism. This changed the importance of efficient on-chip communication significantly and the infrastructure has to keep step with these new requirements. The work at hand makes significant contributions to the state-of-the-art of the latest generation of such solutions, called Networks-on-Chip, to improve the performance, reliability, and flexible management of these on-chip infrastructures.
