The memory is shared between multiple physical links by using the multi-port memory in the link sharing method of the wormhole routed network-on-chip architecture. By this link sharing method the communication performance is substantially improved with extra hardware cost. In this paper, we propose a partial sharing method of a memory by two physical links. It is shown that this limited capacity of memory sharing in this proposed partial sharing method significantly reduces the hardware cost with slight declination of hardware cost.
