Application-Specific Network-on-Chip (ASNoC) architecture is more promising than regular network-on-Chip(NoC) for some particular applications. In ASNoC Design, one of the key challenges is to generate the most suitable and power efficient NoC topology. In previous works, the placement of the cores and network components, and the path allocation are explored separately. However, the path allocation strongly depends on the placement of cores and network components. In this paper, we integrate these steps together through the floorplanning with the cluster reconstruction and path allocation (FCRPA). Several SoC benchmarks have been tested and the results showed improvements over the latest works.
