In this work we propose a TCMS (Tightly Coupled Mesochronous Synchronizer)-based architecture of Globally-Asynchronous Locally-Synchronous (GALS) Network-on-Chips (NoC). The NoC is based on the GigaNoC approach, a scalable NoC featuring packet-switched wormhole routing. At a clock frequency of 750MHz a link bandwidth of up to 6 GByte/s is achieved.
