This paper presents a novel router architecture for implementing a Reconfigurable Network-
on-Chip (RNoC) at high level design using SystemC language. RNoC is an adaptive NoC-
based system-on-chip providing a dynamic reconfigurable communication mechanism. By
adding a virtual port--named Routing Modification port--into the conventional router
architecture, the network router will be able to route communication data flexibly whenever
the target routing path is blocked, by unwanted defects or intently by a software ...
