Mapping is one of the most critical issues in designing a NoC-based system. A good mapping of an application to a NoC will lead to more traffic among resources, which are physically close on the chip. In this paper, we introduce several one-dimensional chaotic maps for solving the NoC mapping problem. In addition we compare the solution qualities in accordance with different criteria mainly communication cost and convergence time. The results confirm an increase, due to chaotic sequences, in the value of some performance indexes.
