    Diversity of computational requirements of information technology products will increase. The products will be based on computers, but the full exploitation of silicon capacity will require improvements in design productivity and system architectures. The chapter presents a backbone-platform-system methodology for development of products that are based on a network-on-chip concept. Encapsulation of dedicated subsystems into a NOC system is the key idea of an “integrated distributed embedded system” approach. The cornerstones of the methodology are the reuse of a NOC backbone and a platform architecture. The NOC backbone encapsulates the physical integration problems into communication solution for system architect. The NOC platform provides application area optimized computation and storage resources for system developers. Essential parts of the methodology are decision-support methods for both NOC platform and NOC system designers.
