    Several parallel applications in MPSoCs take advantage of multicast communication. Path-based multicast scheme has been proven to be more efficient than the others multicast schemes in on-chip interconnection network. We present a new adaptive path based model for both the multicast and unicast wormhole routing protocols. The proposed model under mixed traffic models has lower latency than the previous path-based methods with negligible hardware overhead.
