Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect IP is Licensed by Nextchip for Automotive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Complete interconnect IP solution accelerates image processing system-on-chip (SoC) development

CAMPBELL, Calif. — February 7, 2017 —  Arteris Inc., the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP, today announced that Nextchip has licensed Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP for use in image-based automotive ADAS systems.

We found that Arteris FlexNoC was by far the most complete interconnect IP offering available today. FlexNoC’s quality-of-service, simulation and integration features are eons ahead of all other commercial interconnect solutions.

Arteris announces 9 new licensees, multiple interconnect IP product releases and profitable operation in 2016

Ships major new technologies: Three releases of Ncore™ cache coherent interconnect and three releases of FlexNoC® non-coherent interconnect

CAMPBELL, Calif. — January 17, 2017 —  Arteris Inc., the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP, today announced that it has added nine new licensees of Arteris interconnect IP for use in a variety of SoC applications. New Arteris customers added during 2016 include Kyocera, Movidius (acquired by Intel), Dream Chip Technologies, Istuary Innovation Group, Octasic, and four as-of-yet undisclosed customers. Arteris added nine new licensees in both 2014 and 2015.

I am happy to report that in 2016, Arteris earned nearly the same revenue and is almost the same size in terms of headcount as we were in the year prior to the 2013 Qualcomm transaction.

Microprocessor Report on Autonomous Vehicles: Mobileye Increases Car EyeQ

Learn how the brains of autonomous vehicles work with this easy-to-understand (and free) article

I am often asked by engineers who are not experts on autonomous vehicles exactly how the semiconductor systems in a car work as the brains of an autonomous system. A follow-up question is usually about vendors' current products and market trends.

I often start of by describing the current state-of-the-art in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), the importance of functional safety standards for these systems, and then talk about the technology gap we need to traverse to be able to create fully autonomous systems. I invariable end up babbling incoherently in a flurry of abbreviations and acronyms: NHTSA, ISO 26262, SEooC, V2I, CNN, etc.

Montage Technology Standardizes on Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect IP Licenses for Set-Top Box (STB) Chips

ARM TechCon 2016, SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Oct. 26, 2016 — Arteris Inc., the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP, today announced that Montage Technology, a leading Chinese maker of digital set-top box (STB) systems-on-chip, has licensed Arteris FlexNoC IP for use in its next generation STB chipsets.

We have been so impressed with the benefits of using Arteris FlexNoC within our SoCs that we have decided to purchase multiple additional licenses for our design teams. In addition to the unparalleled quality-of-service features, we experienced shorter design times and less cost due to smaller die area. Arteris IP has been a winner for us.
