CAMPBELL, California - July 8, 2014 - Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Shanghai InfoTM Microelectronics has licensed the Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP to improve performance of their ARM11-based IMAPx220 high-performance multimedia applications processor product line. The IMAPx220 can be applied to high-end hand-held multimedia devices, navigation devices, mobile Internet devices, netbooks, e-books and other consumer electronic applications.
"After our investigation, we saw that Arteris FlexNoC was the best SoC fabric technology that would provide dual channel memory support and address high speed routing congestion issues," said Mr. Kurt Zhang, Product Director at Shanghai InfoTM Microelectronics. "Versus traditional bus and crossbar fabrics, the FlexNoC fabric IP enables very wide on-chip bandwidth and lower latency to address our high bandwidth processing needs."
"We are honored that Shanghai InfoTM Microelectronics has chosen Arteris FlexNoC as the backbone for their most sophisticated IMAPx220 multimedia applications processor," said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. "We are proud that InfoTM is using Arteris technology to help enable the world's most sophisticated consumer electronics products."
