Arteris Unveils Ncore Cache Coherent Interconnect for Efficient Heterogeneous Multicore SoC Designs

Configurable, scalable and distributed architecture allows optimal system performance, power consumption and cost while easing timing closure

CAMPBELL, California — May 24, 2016 — Arteris Inc., the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP, today announced Ncore™ cache coherent interconnect IP version 1.5. Ncore IP is a distributed heterogeneous cache coherent interconnect that allows system architects to efficiently design fully-coherent systems with the advantages of multiple configurable snoop filters and embedded caches, providing greater flexibility than fixed or centralized cache coherency interconnects typically found in today’s SoC designs.

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.

Arteris Ncore Cache Coherent Interconnect IP is Implemented by NXP

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.

Arteris Redefines Heterogeneous Multicore Cache Coherency with Configurable, Distributed Semiconductor Architecture

Technology increases area and power efficiency of systems built with semiconductor IP from multiple sources

CAMPBELL, California — May 17, 2016 — Arteris Inc., the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP, today introduced a semiconductor design technology that enhances the ability of SoC architects to create efficient cache-coherent systems with IP sourced from multiple vendors. Allowing the industry’s first distributed heterogeneous cache-coherent interconnect, the new technology helps designers achieve higher frequency, lower power consumption and reduced time-to-market in producing differentiated SoCs that span multiple design domains such as mobility, HDTV, enterprise storage, automotive advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), micro-server and networking markets.

The exploding cost of the latest semiconductor process nodes is forcing design teams to evaluate new architectural approaches for SoC design. The distributed cache coherent architecture that Arteris offers will help system designers better utilize the processing resources in the SoC, making computing throughput more efficient.
