On-chip communication architectures can have a great influence on the speed and area of System-on-Chip designs, and this influence is expected to be even more pronounced on reconfigurable System-on-Chip (rSoC) designs. To date, little research has been conducted on the performance implications of different on-chip communication architectures for rSoC designs. This paper motivates the need for such research and analyses current and proposed interconnect technologies for rSoC design. The paper also describes work in progress on implementation of a simple serial bus and a packet-switched network, as well as a methodology for quantitatively evaluating the performance of these interconnection structures in comparison to conventional buses.
