- Abstract: Modern NoC (Network-on-Chip) is built of complex functional blocks, such as packet switches and protocol converters. PPA (performance/power/area) estimates for these components are highly desirable during early design phases – long before NoC gate level netlist is synthesized. At this stage a NoC component is a soft module, described by a set of architectural parameters, like the bit width of ingress and egress ports, number of virtual channels, etc.
