Interconnect IP scales with SoC complexity; reducing routing congestion, easing timing closure and increasing performance
SUNNYVALE, California — April 17, 2012 — Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Core Logic has selected Arteris® FlexNoC™ interconnect IP as the backbone SoC interconnect in its next-generation mobile and multimedia processors.
Core Logic is one of Korea’s largest fabless semiconductor vendors, with expertise in low power mobile and multimedia systems-on-chip (SoCs). As the complexity of their SoCs increased, along with back-end timing and routing congestion issues, Core Logic found that its previous interconnect IP solution could not scale to meet their advancing needs.
“Arteris is the first company to offer NoC technology for bus architecture use, and after our technical evaluation we know it will help us handle our complex SoC routing and timing issues,” said Cabin Koo, Chief Engineer at Core Logic. “We are confident that Arteris FlexNoC will help us eliminate back-end issues while simultaneously shrinking our development schedules. Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP is a must to create advanced SoCs, and we are using it for multiple design projects.”
“Core Logic’s decision to adopt Arteris FlexNoC as the backbone SoC interconnect within their most important chips is a strong vote of confidence in Arteris’ unique network-on-chip technology,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “Arteris NoC technology allows the creation of complex SoCs while avoiding the problems of back-end wire routing congestion and timing closure issues inherent in older technologies.”
Arteris, Inc. provides Network-on-Chip interconnect IP and tools to accelerate System-on-Chip semiconductor (SoC) assembly for a wide range of applications. Results obtained by using the Arteris product line include lower power, higher performance, more efficient design reuse and faster development of ICs, SoCs and FPGAs.
Founded by networking experts and offering the first commercially available Network-on-Chip IP products, Arteris operates globally with headquarters in Sunnyvale, California and an engineering center in Paris, France. Arteris is a private company backed by a group of international investors including ARM Holdings, Crescendo Ventures, DoCoMo Capital, Qualcomm Incorporated, Synopsys, TVM Capital, and Ventech.
