During the recent years, 2D mesh network-onchip has attracted much attention due to its suitability for VLSI implementation. The 2-dimensional de Bruijn topology for network-on-chip is introduced in this paper as an attractive alternative to the popular simple 2D mesh NoC. Its cost is equal to that of the simple 2D mesh but it has a logarithmic diameter. We compare the proposed network and the popular mesh network in terms of power consumption and network performance. Compared to the equal sized simple mesh NoC, the proposed de Bruijn-based network has better performance while consuming less energy.
