Configurable System-on-chip (SoC) approach for the Venus Express Monitoring Camera (VMC) has been successfully demonstrated in space. For future space missions e.g. Solar Orbiter, the- demand for high performance onboard processing has drastically increased. To achieve these advanced design goals a Reconfigurable System-on-Chip (RSoC) architecture is proposed supported by an on chip flexible communication architecture. In order to communicate between static (which is running during the whole application runtime and stores all critical interfaces) and dynamic partial reconfiguration we design dedicated Network-on-Chip (NoC) approach called SoCWire. This SoCWire provides guaranteed system qualification with hot-plug ability, high speed point-to-point connection and support of the adaptive macro-pipeline as compared to the Bus Macros which suffers from more area and power consumptions. In this work, we present RTL mode SoCWire Codec for point to point communication. The model operates at maximum operating frequency 491 MHz.
