On-chip interconnects provide a vital facility for highly parallel MultiProcessor Systems-on-Chip, particularly in data-intensive applications. This survey –authored by me and Edoardo Fusella– gives an in-depth overview of application-driven design automation solutions for on-chip interconnects, particularly  hierarchical buses, crossbars, and cascaded crossbars, or any combination of them.
