Open-Silicon Implements Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect IP in ARM Cortex-A9 ASIC Open-Silicon leverages silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) technology to enable faster timing closure and flexible QoS demands
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Arteris, Inc., the inventor and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Open-Silicon implemented the Arteris® FlexNoC™ interconnect IP as the backbone SoC interconnect in a high-performance ARM®-based networking SoC design.
In 2011, Open-Silicon licensed the Arteris NoC interconnect IP as a key technology needed for derivative and ASIC design engagements with its Center of Excellence for ARM Technology. In 2012, Open-Silicon integrated the fabric into a state-of-the-art media gateway SoC as part of a derivative design engagement leveraging Open-Silicon architecture, RTL design, physical design, and software services.
"We used the Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP within our Center of Excellence for ARM Technology to optimize power consumption and performance for an ARM-based subsystem," said Colin Baldwin, senior director of marketing, Open-Silicon. "Arteris' network-on-chip interconnect IP made timing closure much easier and allowed us to implement the QoS management required for the design's high-performance I/O and sophisticated hardware acceleration engines. In addition, we were able to close timing in a fraction of the schedule needed previously for designs using older crossbar-based architectures."
"Arteris is excited that the ARM Technology Center of Excellence at Open-Silicon has chosen Arteris FlexNoC to meet the needs of its most demanding SoC customers," said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. "Arteris NoC technology eases timing closure and enables SoC designers to complete their projects in a fraction of time compared to older technologies."
Arteris, Inc. provides Network-on-Chip interconnect IP and tools to accelerate System-on-Chip semiconductor (SoC) assembly for a wide range of applications. Results obtained by using the Arteris product line include lower power, higher performance, more efficient design reuse and faster development of ICs, SoCs and FPGAs.
Founded by networking experts and offering the first commercially available Network-on-Chip IP products, Arteris operates globally with headquarters in Sunnyvale, California and an engineering center in Paris, France. Arteris is a private company backed by a group of international investors including ARM Holdings, Crescendo Ventures, DoCoMo Capital, Qualcomm Incorporated, Synopsys, TVM Capital, and Ventech.
