Cache coherent IP combined with resilience features enables functional safety for heterogeneous cache coherent systems-on-chip (SoC)
CAMPBELL, California — May 24, 2016 — Arteris Inc., the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP, today announced that NXP Semiconductors has licensed Ncore™ cache coherent interconnect IP for use in its SoCs.
We chose Ncore interconnect IP because of its outstanding configurability and flexibility, allowing us to create highly differentiated cache coherent SoCs using processors and accelerator IP optimized for the application. Having precise control over the configuration of coherent agent ports, memory interfaces, and snoop filters helps us make more power- and area-efficient SoCs. The distributed hardware architecture allows for a more efficient physical design by easing back-end placement and timing closure.
