Network-on-chip Interconnect IP speeds design, improves process flow
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 30, 2013 -- Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Access Network Technology Limited has licensed the Arteris® FlexNoC® interconnect IP fabric for use in its newest mobile LTE modem baseband chip. Access Network Technology is the recently formed joint venture created by Fujitsu Ltd, NTT DoCoMo, Inc., and NEC Corp.
"After conducting internal benchmark testing between Arteris and other solutions, we proved that FlexNoC delivered improved performance with reduced power consumption," said Minoru Sakata, President of Access Network Technology. "In addition, the design flexibility and shortened development time made Arteris the clear winner for our LTE platform."
