The demand of integration of many heterogeneous semiconductor intellectual property (IP) blocks has been introducing a new chip design paradigm so called on chip network. This paradigm promisingly offers a packet switched network among IPs to reduce the main problems in the very deep sub micron technologies that arise from non-scalable global wire delay, failure to achieve global synchronization, errors due to the signal integrity, non-scalable bus based functional interconnection, etc. This paper introduces interconnected or switched network topologies and also analyze their performances in terms of communication protocol related to the issues such as routing strategy, buffer size, routing algorithm , etc. The above mentioned evaluations are done by utilizing the tool that has been widely used in the research domain of computer network design, so called NS-2.
