This paper addresses communication optimisation for applications implemented on networks-on-chip. The mapping of data packets to network links and the timing of the release of the packets are critical for avoiding destination contention. This reduces the demand for communication buffers with obvious advantages in chip area and energy savings. We propose a buffer need analysis approach and a strategy for communication synthesis and packet release timing with minimum communication buffer demand that guarantees worst-case response times.
