Shorter time-to-closure and end-to-end Quality-of-Service (QoS) tuning result in better interconnect performance for ARM-based server SoC
CAMPBELL, California — March 31, 2015 — Arteris Inc., the inventor and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that AppliedMicro, also known as Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), has selected Arteris® FlexNoC® for use in its X-Gene™ Server on a Chip Solutions. The proven Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP enables low latency on-chip communication on these extremely complex SoCs, significantly reducing the effort to close timing and increasing performance.
The AppliedMicro X-Gene server chips are some of the most sophisticated SoC designs leveraging the ARMv8 64-bit architecture. By adopting Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP for the X-Gene platforms, AppliedMicro has cast a convincing vote of confidence in our unique technology and showcased the level of complexity and power savings that our IP enables.
K. Charles Janac, President and CEO, Arteris
AppliedMicro first licensed the Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP for its X-Gene Server on a Chip platform development in 2012. FlexNoC fabric IP is the backbone SoC interconnect for the shipping X-Gene product as well as the recently announced second-generation X-Gene 2 product line.
“The AppliedMicro X-Gene server chips are some of the most sophisticated SoC designs leveraging the ARMv8 64-bit architecture,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “By adopting Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP for the X-Gene platforms, AppliedMicro has cast a convincing vote of confidence in our unique technology and showcased the level of complexity and power savings that our IP enables.”
