NoC interconnect enables high bandwidth and low latency on-chip communications while increasing functional safety diagnostic coverage
CAMPBELL, Calif. – March 19, 2019 – Arteris IP, the leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that Vayyar Imaging has licensed Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP and the accompanying FlexNoC Resilience Package for use in its next-generation radio frequency (RF) 3D imaging chips for automotive systems.
Vayyar creates powerful and unique chips that perform high-resolution 3D imaging in real time using advanced RF technology. The company’s current generation of chips covers multiple radar bands from 3 to 81 GHz and implements 72 transmitters and 72 receivers along with an integral advanced digital signal processor (DSP). Use of the Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP and Resilience Package will enable the integration of even more processing units while providing in-hardware data protection for automotive functional safety.
“Vayyar’s chip is the most advanced radar imaging SoC in the market today enabling real-time high-resolution 3D Point Cloud. Our chip requires the ability to transfer large amounts of data and make sure the highest safety standards are kept. Arteris NoC technology enables data protection mechanisms that increase the functional safety of our systems to meet the highest automotive safety standards,” said Raviv Melamed, CEO and Co-Founder of Vayyar.
“We are excited that Vayyar, the industry leader in RF 3D imaging technology, has adopted Arteris IP interconnect technology as the communications backbone of their ISO 26262-compliant 3D radar imaging chips,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris IP. “Vayyar’s choice is confirmation of our technology’s ability to optimize high bandwidth and low latency on-chip communications while increasing system-wide functional safety diagnostic coverage.”
