Network-on-chip (NoC) has been introduced as a new paradigm to solve System on chip (SOC) design challenges. The Network-on-Chip (NoC) architecture as a viable solution to the complex on-chip communication problems. Communication performance of NOC's is heavily depends on routing algorithm. The architecture of NOC is based on topology, routing algorithm and switching techniques. The routing algorithm is one of key ingredient in NOC architecture. A routing algorithm determines how the data is routed from sender to receiver The routing algorithm are Source, deterministic XY routing algorithm, adaptive Odd-Even (OE) routing algorithm with deadlock-free ability. This paper presents review of Odd-Even (OE) routing algorithm on 2D Mesh topology of NOC architecture for bursty traffic.
