Networks-on-Chip (NoC) emerged to address the technological and design issues related to development of large systems-on-chip (SoCs). Due to diversity of the application's performance requirements, most NoC architectures offer supports for quality of service (QoS). Also, to utilize the available bandwidth efficiently, they might implement mechanisms for delivering collective communication operations. This paper presents an analytical model to predict the average latency of wormhole-routed prioritized broadcast communication in NoCs. The model assumes that the network uses all-port routers scheme and offers differentiated services-based QoS. To verify the analysis, the model predictions are compared against the results obtained from a discrete-event simulator developed using OMNET++.
