Arteris Press Releases

Arteris IP Ncore® Cache Coherent Interconnect Licensed by Bitmain for Sophon TPU Artificial Intelligence (AI) Chips

Network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect enables faster performance and lower die area for Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) AI/ML applications

CAMPBELL, Calif. June 9, 2019– Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that Bitmain has licensed Arteris Ncore Cache Coherent Interconnect IP for use in its next-generation Sophon Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) systems-on-chip (SoCs) for the scalable hardware acceleration of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms.

Our choice of interconnect IP became more important as we continued to increase the complexity and performance of Sophon AI SoCs. The Arteris Ncore cache coherent interconnect IP allowed us to increase our on-chip bandwidth and reduce die area, while being easy to implement in the backend. The Ncore IP’s configurability helped us optimize the die area of our SoC, which permits us to offer our users more performance at lower cost.”
