Abstract: Efficient communication wrapper design is one of the important research issues in network on chip. A single wrapper with fixed design parameter will not be efficient one for the heterogeneous environmental network on chip scenario. The system on chip has many different computing and communication blocks with different data rate and data format. To interconnect such a heteronymous block a standard-based wrapper framework such as OCI wrapper are proposed. But such standard wrapper does not support the QoS demand of the every block. So this work proposes a framework of reconfigurable communication wrapper design with support of QoS. The proposed framework is simulated in LABVIEW software and tested on National Instruments FlexRIO 7845R FPGA hardware. The result shows that on the fly re-configurability is achievable with the framework.

Keywords: OCI wrapper; reconfigurable communication wrapper; QoS; system on chip; SoC.
