Arteris Announces PIANO™ 2.0 Automated Interconnect Timing Closure Technology

CAMPBELL, Calif. — March 8, 2017 — Arteris Inc., the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP, today announced its next generation automated interconnect timing solution – the PIANO 2.0 Timing Closure Package. PIANO 2.0 builds on customer silicon experience gathered with FlexNoC Physical package to automate interconnect timing closure for both cache coherent and non-coherent subsystems.

By applying PIANO 2.0 together with generated placement guides, Renesas was able to close the complex SoC development sooner than we expected. Renesas has been an early user of Arteris’ closure technology, and we plan to continue to use Arteris’ enhanced closure capabilities for our future SoC developments.
