We present a methodology and an optimization framework for the synthesis of on-chip communication through the assembly of components such as interfaces, routers, buses, and links, from a target library. Models for functionality, cost, and performance of each element are captured in the library together with their composition rules. We develop a mathematical framework to model communication at different levels of abstraction from the point-to-point input specification to the library elements and the final implementation.
