Arteris® IP FlexNoC® Interconnect and AI Package Licensed by Blue Ocean Smart System for AI Chips

State-of-the-art Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect enables optimized write broadcast dataflow for AI inference and training hardware accelerator chips

CAMPBELL, Calif. – May 19, 2020 – Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that Blue Ocean Smart System has licensed Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect IP and the accompanying AI Package for use in next generation systems-on-chip (SoC) that hardware accelerate artificial intelligence (AI) neural network inference and training.

From prior experience, I knew that Arteris interconnect IP was the best solution to construct complex high frequency and high bandwidth on-chip interconnects that were backend friendly for easier timing closure. The addition of the AI Package allows us to finely tune our chip architecture using multicast write semantics which greatly reduce off-chip memory accesses while using little die area and consuming much less power. Our use of Arteris FlexNoC and the AI Package has been key to turning our architectural dreams into system-on-chip reality.”

Arteris® IP FlexNoC® Interconnect Again Licensed by NETINT Technologies for Codensity Enterprise SSD Controllers

State-of-the-art Network-on-Chip (NoC) technology enables next-generation of SSD controllers for high density real-time 4K H.265 video transcoding and storage

CAMPBELL, Calif. – March 24, 2020 – Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that NETINT Technologies has once again licensed Arteris IP FlexNoC Interconnect for use in its next-generation of enterprise solid state disk (SSD) storage system controllers with on-chip video encoding processors. NETINT’s first purchase of Arteris IP interconnect licenses was announced in January of 2019 (see, “Arteris IP FlexNoC® Interconnect Licensed by NETINT Technologies for PCIe 4.0 Enterprise SSD Controllers”).

Our Codensity G4 D400 SSDs were the industry’s first SSDs supporting a PCIe 4.0 interface, and our next-generation SSD controllers will push technology boundaries even more. Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP has been critical to our products’ success because it enables the high bandwidth, low latency and data protection required for our systems. The flexibility of Arteris FlexNoC has allowed us to implement more sophisticated SoC architectures in less time that would otherwise be possible, thereby allowing us to create higher margin chips with less engineering effort.”
