Automotive semiconductor innovator standardizes on Arteris IP FlexNoC interconnect for use in its next-generation systems-on-chip.
CAMPBELL, Calif. – June 29, 2021 – Arteris IP, a leading provider of network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect and other intellectual property (IP) technology that manages the on-chip communications in system-on-chip (SoC) semiconductor devices, today announced that Chinese automotive semiconductor vendor AutoChips has again licensed FlexNoC interconnect IP for use in automotive systems-on-chip (SoCs).
AutoChips first licensed Arteris IP semiconductor IP in 2018 and has implemented the technology in a production automotive chip design. (See, “Arteris IP FlexNoC® Interconnect Licensed by AutoChips for Automotive SoC Development.”)
“Arteris FlexNoC IP has been critical to our ability to quickly design and qualify our chips for the automotive market,” said Cliff Gu, chief designer at AutoChips. “Arteris IP has unparalleled technology that meets the unique functional safety, performance and time to market needs of our rapidly evolving automotive semiconductor market. In addition to offering unique on-chip interconnect IP with a strong track record of mass production automotive designs, the local Arteris IP engineering support team’s expertise in semiconductor architecture and design has provided added benefits to our company.”
“We are excited that AutoChips has renewed their use of Arteris IP interconnect technology as the on-chip communications backbone of its automotive systems-on-chip,” said K. Charles Janac, president and CEO of Arteris IP. “AutoChips’ decision to standardize on our interconnect IP for their automotive SoC portfolio is a strong endorsement of the benefits we bring to automotive semiconductor design teams.”
