—As the number of transistors in a single chip is increasing day by day, SoC is a very popular choice among the developers as it gives more speed and functionality. The IPs in the SoCs can be from different vendors and may be used for a third party for manufacturing a chip. For effective communication among the IPs or more commonly Cores, an in built network structure called Network on Chip (NOC) has been developed over the years and different versions of NOCs are available in the present day. This paper proposes a segmented buffer structure for NOC router for effective utilization of the NOC buffers.
