Arteris to Provide Network on Chip IP and Tools for Leading-Edge Designs SAN JOSE, Calif. -- January 19, 2009 -
- Arteris Inc., the leading developer of Network on Chip (NoC) solutions today announced that it has been selected by NEC Electronics Europe as the interconnect IP and tool solution supplier for advanced SoC design. NEC Electronics Europe will use the on-chip communication management capabilities of the Arteris NoC solution in the development of next-generation semiconductor products.
The NEC Electronics Europe development team chose the Arteris NoC solution for its ability to effectively manage the on-chip communication of complex SoC designs in 90, 55- and 40-nanometer (nm) process geometries. This includes efficient top level integration and management of multiple IP blocks in multiple IP communication protocols including APBTM , AHB and AXITM. Arteris NoC solution benefits include increased performance in excess of 500MHz, reduction of the number of global wires by 50%, lower power, and scalable quality of service.
“We have decided on Arteris NoC interconnect IP solution in order to improve the efficiency with which we deliver complex SoC platforms and their derivatives to our customers,” said Matthias Voigt, General Manager of Engineering Group at NEC Electronics Europe. “We trust that Arteris NoC IP solution has evolved to become a viable approach and offers significant benefits over hybrid bus interconnect technologies.”
“We are very excited to be working with the NEC Electronics Duesseldorf team and look forward to a long term and expanding relationship,” said Michel Telera, Arteris Vice President of Sales, Europe, Japan and Middle East “Applying our NoC solution to the advanced requirements of complex applications is indicative of the performance and complexity management benefits this approach can deliver. This agreement builds on the momentum we have seen in other geographic and application areas as NoC becomes more widely adopted.” About Arteris
