Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect technology pioneer delivers flexibility and improved time-to-market while reducing risk
CAMPBELL, California – December 11, 2013 – Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that fabless semiconductor company Sckipio of Tel Aviv, Israel has chosen the Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP for their G.fast chipsets.
Demand for broadband continues to grow, with cloud-based services and video-rich content pushing the need for consumer bandwidth. Service providers have turned to the new ITU G.fast communications standard to maximize existing copper infrastructure. Delivering 1 Gbps per subscriber, with a flexible downlink/uplink, G.fast delivers ultra-high speed broadband while eliminating new infrastructure and backhaul costs. Sckipio chipsets will leverage the Arteris’ FlexNoC interconnect fabric IP to drive high throughput while supporting low latencies for realtime response.
“Just as the Sckipio solution helps service providers get the most out of their existing Cat-3 twisted pair, the Arteris’ FlexNoC technology helps us get the most out of our design and development phase,” said Ron Stereson, Vice President of R&D for Sckipio. “FlexNoC fabric IP speeds our time to market – and lets us make mission-critical changes at the very end of the design process. This reduced risk gives us confidence that our products will be right every time.” “Sckipio placed their confidence in our FlexNoC interconnect to work with this burgeoning new standard and meet its strict telecommunications demands,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “Our user interface, tools performance and reputation for solid execution made Arteris the best partner to drive G.fast into the market.”
Arteris, Inc. provides Network-on-Chip interconnect IP and tools to accelerate System-on-Chip semiconductor (SoC) assembly for a wide range of applications. Rapid semiconductor designer adoption by customers such as Samsung, Altera, and Texas Instruments has resulted in Arteris being the only semiconductor IP company to be ranked in the Inc. 500 and Deloitte Technology Fast 500 lists in 2012 and 2013. Customer results obtained by using the Arteris product line include lower power, higher performance, more efficient design reuse and faster SoC development, leading to lower development and production costs.
