Accelerates AMBA ACE, AXI and CHI protocol adoption for heterogeneous multi-core system-on-chip IP integration
ARM TechCon 2015, SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- November 10, 2015 -- Arteris Inc., supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that it is expanding its support and integration of ARM® AMBA® protocol specifications.
Arteris has supported ARM IP for many years, implementing the Advanced Peripheral Bus (APB), Advanced High-Performance Bus (AHB) and Advanced eXtensible Interface (AXI) version 3 and 4 specifications within its interconnect IP products. Arteris also participated in the ARM AMBA 4 ACE specification process starting in 2011. Arteris’ goal is to accelerate the semiconductor industry adoption of current and future versions of AMBA specifications such as AXI, AXI Coherency Extensions (ACE) and Coherency Hub Interface (CHI).
“Chip complexity continues to increase in line with the constant demand for more performance, lower power, greater integration and faster time to market,” said Nandan Nayampally, vice president of marketing, CPU group, ARM. “Arteris’ interconnect capability will play an important role within the ARM ecosystem in helping to meet these goals while also allowing for efficient design re-use.”
“The Arteris relationship with ARM is very important to our joint customers because we support the integration of ARM processors and other ARM IP with customer-developed and commercial IP to create the heterogeneous SoCs needed in numerous semiconductor markets,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “We are committed to support the evolution of ARM interconnect standards on a long-term basis to enable semiconductor design teams to confidently integrate their chosen IP within the ARM ecosystem.”
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.
