Arteris, SA, provides IPs and associated design tools to improve performance of SoC architectures for multimedia, telecom and mobile applications compared to incumbent technologies. Arteris’ Network on Chip solutions transport and manage the on-chip communications within complex System-on-Chip (SoC) integrated circuits, increasing performance, reducing number of global wires, with lower power utilization while enabling the most complex, IP-laden designs. It allows chip developers to implement efficient and high-performance NoC designs, overcoming limitations of traditional layered or pipelined bus-based architectures. Arteris’ technology is scaleable in terms of the number of IP blocks designers can network, as well as with deep submicron silicon manufacturing processes. The NoC solutions are compatible with existing design flows and with IP interface standards.
The international company operates globally with headquarters in Paris, France and offices in Boston and San Jose, California. Arteris has raised more than $12 million in equity investment from an international set of venture capitalists, including Crescendo Ventures, Techno Venture Management and Ventech.
