Latest multi-media chip from electronics leader benefits from integration, performance advantages of pioneering on-chip communications solution
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 12, 2010 -- Arteris Inc., a leading interconnect IP solutions provider, announced today that NTT Electronics has adopted its Network on Chip (NoC) technology for the on-chip communications requirements for NTT Electronics' SoC design applications. The company successfully completed a system-on-chip (SoC) design for a graphics application that utilizes Arteris's innovative NoC IP library and tools to integrate internally and externally developed IP blocks on the SoC. The successful SoC development was supported by Arteris' Japan Distributor, Innotech.
"We have been very satisfied with the performance and quality of the Arteris NoC technology," said Mr. Shoichi Otake, NTT Electronics' General Manager, 1st product Group Digital Video Business. "We have accelerated our time to market and achieved significant performance advantages compared to other interconnect IP approaches. Based on this successful experience, we are deploying the Arteris NoC on other projects."
The design from NTT Electronics is a graphics SoC which requires high efficient memory access and high throughput. Based on a deep sub-micron manufacturing process, the chip benefited from the Arteris solution's ability to manage a high volume of on-chip communication traffic, efficiently integrate multiple IPs into the system while increasing system performance and decreasing silicon area.
"NTT Electronics has proven the benefits of implementing an NoC-based approach for their graphics SoC designs," said Charlie Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. "We have high confidence that the advantages of the Arteris NoC technology provide technical and economic advantages to NTT Electronics that will translate into great end-user experience with NTT Electronics products."
"NTT Electronics' specification required a high performance solution and we are pleased that by using the Arteris' NoC, they could easily implement the complicated inter-connect necessary to meet their objectives," said Takashi Takahashi, Director of Innotech Corporation.
