Network-on-Chip (NoC) has gained considerable attention over the last few years as a paradigm for implementing communication among the system components embedded in a single chip. As such, there has been an increased need for defining and developing simulation software for carrying out simulation of NoC architectures. In this paper, we present gpNoCsim, a JAVA based general-purpose network simulator for NoC, which is built upon the object-oriented modular design of the NoC architecture

We have also provided the guidelines on how to simulate future architectures. Finally, we have validated the outputs of gpNoCsim with the studies of existing NoC architectures.
