Multiuse deal follows successful implementation of Arteris NoC technology in QorIQ products targeting industrial, healthcare and networking markets
CAMPBELL, Calif., Feb. 19, 2014 -- Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Freescale® Semiconductor has licensed Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP for use in multiple chips within its QorIQ processing platform system-on-chip (SoC) product line.
Freescale is a long-time Arteris FlexNoC user, having used the pioneering network-on-chip technology since 2011.
"Our successful adoption of Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP has been straightforward, allowing us to more quickly architect and implement sophisticated systems-on-chip in less time and with better power consumption and performance," said Fares Bagh, vice president of R&D for Freescale's Digital Networking business. "Arteris NoC technology enables wide on-chip bandwidth with fewer wires and lower latency than traditional bus and crossbar fabrics. This multiuse deal is expected to help us deliver these benefits more quickly to engineering teams throughout Freescale."
"We are excited that Freescale's success using FlexNoC has resulted in a licensing agreement that allows more engineering teams at Freescale to take advantage of Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP," said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. "We are proud of our relationship with Freescale and look forward to continued success implementing complex SoCs using network on chip technology."
