Network on-Chip (NoC) is a novel technology which is used to make the interconnections between the components available in the System on Chip (SoC) design. This technology of NoC is defined and used in two varied forms as buffered and bufferless NoC. Bufferless NoC, a predominant type of network on chip, is used to reduce the cost efficiently by removing input buffers of the router. However, it is evident that this performance gets jammed at high loads because of the increase in the network contentions and deflection of packets in huge amount. To reduce the amount of deflection and to buttress the flow, Clumsy Flow Control (CFC) is used in the bufferless NoC. In this paper, a novel proposal has been propounded into the pipelining mechanism keeping in mind the flawless flow control needed for the bufferless NoC to decrease the impact of deflection routing and to increase the throughput with high injection rate. Employing the pipelining technique into the existing flow control increases the frequency which in turn, is responsible for high throughput. Implementation of the aforementioned pipelining mechanism is done in two stages in the bufferless NoC which helps to increase the throughput as well as the injection rate. Finally, the application with its pipelined implementation, as proposed, will be mapped onto the NoC architecture by using the CFC.
