In this paper, we propose an interface design which supports serial-link packet-based transmission model for network-on-chip application The interface function consists of packet construction, flow control, error detect, re-transmission mechanism, data scrambler and 8b/10b transformation. The whole function is partitioned into three layers and designed as a peer-to-peer architecture. Every layer can be further divided into a transmitting portion that processes outbound traffic and a receiving portion that processes inbound traffic. We also simulate the buffer requirement with different transmission parameters. Finally, the layout area of network interface is about 0.43 mm2 based on 0.13 mum CMOS technology.
