Fully-featured network-on-chip (NoC) IP shortens design time, increases performance and reduces die cost and power consumption
CAMPBELL, Calif. — November 3, 2015 —Arteris Inc., the inventor and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Blu Wireless Technology has licensed Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP for use in its HYDRA WiGig and 60GHz millimeter wave baseband IP.
Blu Wireless, based in Bristol, UK, designs and licenses semiconductor intellectual property to telecommunications semiconductor companies for gigabit rate wireless modems operating in the millimeter wave frequency bands.
Because we use a complex heterogeneous multiprocessing architecture, mixing fixed-function DSP blocks with highly optimized parallel vector DSPs, we required an interconnect that implements end-to-end quality of service guaranteeing our on-chip latency and bandwidth requirements. Arteris FlexNoC delivered this QoS while using less die area and power consumption than competing technologies.
