ArterisIP Acquires iNoCs Software and Associated Intellectual Property Rights

Advances the next round of SoC interconnect innovation with cutting-edge software and algorithms created by iNoCs based on EPFL research

CAMPBELL, Calif. — October 19, 2017 — ArterisIP, the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP,today announced that it has acquired exclusive rights to iNoCs’ software, hardware, and associated intellectual property. iNoCs was founded in 2007 by leading researchers in the field of network-on-chip (NoC), Giovanni De Micheli, Luca Benini, Federico Angiolini and Srinivasan Murali, to pioneer the field of topology synthesis for the then emerging NoC interconnect IP market. Antonio Pullini later joined them to bring topology placement expertise. iNoCs has developed exciting concepts, algorithms, and software that address the increasing complexity of deep submicron semiconductor interconnects. With this agreement, ArterisIP will accelerate the adoption of these innovative technologies by implementing them in its extensive product roadmap and making them available to its broad customer base.

With our involvement, ArterisIP will be able to leverage the work done by the iNoCs team in their future generation products, and build upon this technology foundation.
