In order to improve the performance of current embedded systems, Network -on-Chip (NoC) offers many advantages, especially in terms of flexibility and low cost. Applications require more and more intensive computations, especially multimedia applications such as video encoding. Developing product and application using such an architecture offers many challenges and opportunities. Many tools will be required to develop a NoC architecture for a specific application. A tool which can map and schedule an application or a set of applications to a given NoC architecture will be essential and must be able to satisfy many relative trade-offs (real-time, performance, low power consumption, time to market, re-usability, cost, area, etc). In this paper, we survey most approaches used to solve this problem with different goals. We then describe our approach based on a genetic algorithm and its implementation and its design objective.
