CAMPBELL, Calif. – January 15, 2019 – Arteris IP, the leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip(NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that NETINT Technologies has licensed Arteris IP FlexNoC Interconnect for use in its enterprise SSD storage system controllers with on-chip video processors.
For the G4 SoC inside each D400 SSD, the Arteris FlexNoC IP supports high bandwidth and data accuracy between the G4’s on-chip PCIe 4.0 interface and all internal subsystems. Arteris FlexNoC IP allows higher bandwidth and lower latency on-chip communications compared to other interconnect technologies, while increasing our development team’s efficiency, allowing us to create higher quality chips in less time.”
Tao Zhong, CTO, NETINT Technologies
Arteris FlexNoC interconnect’s advanced data protection features are well suited to meet the needs for NETINT’s Codensity™ G4 SSD Controller. The Codensity G4 systems-on-chip (SoC) is the core technology inside Codensity D400 SSDs, as well as Codensity T400 Video Transcoders. Both products have very high bandwidth requirements, requiring the G4 SoC to interconnect terabits per second of data between on-chip subsystems, while ensuring data accuracy is maintained. FlexNoC’s unique benefits include:
- On-chip data path protection – Arteris FlexNoC IP’s parity and ECC data protection safeguard on-chip data flows in real time.
- High bandwidth, low latency for PCIe – Arteris FlexNoC provides quality-of-service (QoS) configuration options, allowing optimal use of high bandwidth and low latency block transfers.
- Lower power consumption – FlexNoC’s power management options allow high numbers of voltage and clock domains while enabling power and clock gating at multiple levels.
“Our Codensity D400 SSDs are the industry’s first SSDs supporting a PCIe 4.0 interface, delivering 2X the data throughput compared to today’s PCIe Gen3 SSD offerings,” said Tao Zhong, CTO of NETINT Technologies. “For the G4 SoC inside each D400 SSD, the Arteris FlexNoC IP supports high bandwidth and data accuracy between the G4’s on-chip PCIe 4.0 interface and all internal subsystems. Arteris FlexNoC IP allows higher bandwidth and lower latency on-chip communications compared to other interconnect technologies, while increasing our development team’s efficiency, allowing us to create higher quality chips in less time.”
“NETINT’s use of FlexNoC interconnect IP in their PCIe 4.0 enterprise SSD controllers is validation of the performance and time to market advantages of using Arteris IP,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris IP. “We look forward to a long cooperation with NETINT as they introduce new technologies into the enterprise SSD and video transcoding markets.”
