Abstract-- This paper presents an asynchronous on-chip net-
work router with Quality-of-Service (QoS) support. The router
uses a virtual channel architecture with a priority-based sched-
uler to differentiate between multiple connections with various
QoS requirements sharing the same physical channel. A gate-
level prototype of the router has been built and its functionality
and performance is evaluated. The simulations show that the
router is capable of offering a high-level QoS within the capacity
limitations of the network.
A modem System-on-a-Chip (SoC) design represents a het-
erogeneous environment with various components interacting
in many different ways (event-driven, data streaming, message
