NoC (Network on chip) is a new technology for designing of communication structure in SoC design. Where large number of IP blocks communicates with each other. Router is the backbone of NoC design which handles the communication and connecting with neighbors. Designing of router and its characteristics is directly impact on the performance of NoC. Size of the new era digital system design are shrieked and the system becomes more complex day by day. Before to design any digital system we think two more important factors are power and performance. Only the communication portion in any system consume 50% power of the total power used by the system. Here we show the different types of router architecture which can improve the system performance.
