Chinese semiconductor supplier chooses Arteris FlexNoC to help accelerate automotive SoC development and ISO 26262 functional safety certification
CAMPBELL, Calif. — February 27, 2018 — Arteris IP, the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect semiconductor intellectual property (IP), today announced that Chinese automotive semiconductor vendor AutoChips has licensed Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP as the on-chip communications backbone of its next-generation automotive SoC chip.
Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP is the on-chip communications backbone of most of the world’s automotive ADAS SoCs, application processors, digital baseband modems, and enterprise SSD controllers. The FlexNoC Resilience Package adds data protection features required to obtain higher ISO 26262 automotive safety integrity levels (ASIL) by implementing on-chip error code correction (ECC) protection, hardware redundancy, unit checking, data monitoring and built in self-test (BIST), and by providing a complete set of ISO 26262 documentation.
“We chose Arteris FlexNoC IP because it is the first and only on-chip interconnect IP with a track record of mass production automotive chip implementations at the ISO 26262 ASIL B levels,” said WenHsin Wang, General Manager at AutoChips.
Arteris IP is the leading interconnect IP company with proven technology and expertise that helps automotive semiconductor companies deliver higher performing and safer chips with lower schedule and development risk.
“We are proud that AutoChips has chosen Arteris IP FlexNoC as the on-chip communications backbone of its new SoC,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris IP. “This selection is further validation that Arteris IP helps accelerate product development and ISO 26262 certification of highly complex automotive systems.”
