Licensee acquisition remains at historical levels as FlexNoC SoC fabric IP solidifies position as the industry standard
CAMPBELL, California — November 4, 2014 — Arteris Inc., the inventor and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that seven new customers have licensed Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP in 2014 for use as the backbone interconnect of their systems-on-chip (SoCs).
This growth in licensing activity, combined with the lack of any attrition in our existing customer base, proves the value and benefits Arteris and its technology provide to our users: Shorter time to market, lower cost, less power consumption and faster SoC performance.
The seven new Arteris customers include Marvell, InfoTM, HiSense, Rambus, two unannounced solid-state disk (SSD) vendors and a major system OEM. Marvell was announced in June, InfoTM in July, Hisense in August, and Rambus in October.
Other publicly disclosed Arteris licensing activities in 2014 include:
- Freescale executed another license with Arteris, purchasing multiple instances of Arteris FlexNoC for use in their QorIQ networking SoCs
- Spreadtrum licensed multiple instances of Arteris FlexNoC for use in mobile phone application processor and digital baseband modem SoCs
- GUC licensed Arteris FlexNoC for use in its 16nm SoC verification platform
- HiSilicon (Huawei) executed another license for multiple instances of Arteris FlexNoC for company-wide use in mobile phones, tablets and other consumer electronics devices.
“Semiconductor companies and SoC design teams continue to adopt Arteris interconnect fabric IP at rapid rates,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “In addition, we have retained all our existing licensees, many of whom have increased their commitments to deployment of Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP technology. This growth in licensing activity, combined with the lack of any attrition in our existing customer base, proves the value and benefits Arteris and its technology provide to our users: Shorter time to market, lower cost, less power consumption and faster SoC performance.”
