Existing licensees ship 100 chip designs containing FlexNoC interconnect IP
CAMPBELL, Calif. -- February 02, 2016 -- Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that it has added nine new licensees for Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect IP for a variety of system applications. Arteris customers added during 2015 include SK Hynix, ZTE, Beijing Pinecone, Sequans Communications, Montage Technology, Blu Wireless Technology, and three as of yet undisclosed automotive and consumer electronics customers.
2015 was an exciting year for Arteris and its semiconductor IP customers. As of December of 2015, there were 101 Arteris-connected SoC designs produced or currently in production, manufactured in a variety of silicon process from 65nm down to to 14nm. Also, 2015 was the first year that Arteris has been designed into in SoCs using 10nm processes.
Arteris delivered two announced new products in 2015: FlexNoC Resilience Package for automotive and industrial applications requiring reliability and safety, and FlexNoC Physical for automated timing closure and physical constraint management at the architectural level. Both new products were licensed by customers and deployed on production SoC projects in 2015. Geographically, the largest design win customer traction came from Asian semiconductor and system houses. In addition, Arteris delivered four new quarterly customer releases for its flagship FlexNoC Interconnect product in 2015.
“If you own a smart phone, chances are the application processor or digital baseband modem are built with Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “Mobility was the first market to demand the semiconductor improvements in SoC power consumption, performance and area (PPA), in addition to lower R&D and unit costs, that are enabled by using Arteris IP. Now these benefits are demanded by our automotive, IoT and industrial customers, in addition to advanced features like SoC reliability for increasing the functional safety of mission critical electronics systems. We look forward to delivering additional interconnect IP product innovation in 2016”.
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, Huawei / Hisilicon, Mobileye, 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.
