Network on Chip interconnect IP enables shorter design time and expands product market
SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 9, 2012 -- Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that iC-Logic has selected Arteris® FlexNoC® network on chip interconnect IP and C2C chip-to-chip interconnect IP for systems-on-chip (SoCs) targeting high end automotive infotainment equipments. iC-Logic chose FlexNoC and C2C to create a flexible and high speed communication chip to respond to the increasing demand of high speed connectivity in car infotainment systems. iC-Logic's use of FlexNoC and C2C has helped reduce design schedules and increased the potential market for users of their SoC.
"iC-Logic licensed Arteris FlexNoC and C2C because we needed fast design cycle time and full compatibility with other SoCs. FlexNoC's ease of use and integrated simulation and verification features helped us to optimize our SoC integration and development time," said Martin Damrau, Managing Director at iC-Logic. "And our choice of the C2C chip to chip interconnect IP ensures our compatibility with application processors using C2C. Thanks to the collaboration with Arteris, iC-Logic added C2C integration expertise to our skill set enabling us to quickly design SoCs with this sophisticated interface."
"iC-Logic's use of Arteris FlexNoC and C2C interconnect IP for its high speed communication SoC is an innovative way to reduce SoC time to market and grow the market size for application processor SoCs," said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. "We are excited to be an important partner who is helping iC-Logic to innovate its way to success."
