Abstract: In the System on Chip (SoC) design, the synthesis of communication architecture constitutes the bottleneck which can affect the performances of the system. The Quality of Service Network on Chip (QNoC) is the most perferment solution that provides low latency transfers and power efficient System on Chip (SoC) interconnect. This study presents new asynchronous and generic router (GeRouter) for use in the new NoC generation architectures (Spider, Polygon, Octagon, etc). This router integrates a generic number of interconnected input and output ports, a sophisticated speed independent dynamic arbiter; a CRC based checking scheme, an Aloha retransmission protocol and two different routing techniques (Wormhole and Virtual Cut Through). This makes it possible to improve the Quality of Service (QoS) required by the NoC that integrate it. The performance study show that the proposed router enables higher data rate and low latency transfers.
