Arteris IP Announces New FlexNoC® 4 Interconnect IP with Artificial Intelligence (AI) Package

Industry leading commercial interconnect IP accelerates development of next-generation deep neural network (DNN) and machine learning systems

CAMPBELL, Calif. – October 31, 2018 – Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property (IP)today announced the new Arteris IP FlexNoC version 4 interconnect IP and the companion AI Package. FlexNoC 4 and the AI Package (“FlexNoC 4 AI”) implement many new technologies that ease the development of today’s most complex AI, deep neural network (DNN), and autonomous driving systems-on-chip (SoC).

Numerous startups are attempting to develop SoCs for neural-network training and inference, but to be successful, they must have the interconnect IP and tools required to integrate such complex, massively parallel processors while meeting the requirements for high-bandwidth on-chip and off-chip communications. Arteris IP has the experience and interconnect IP to help these companies succeed, and FlexNoC 4 with the AI Package provides the features required for AI chips in an easy-to-use and highly configurable form.

Arteris IP FlexNoC® Interconnect IP Licensed by Enflame (Suiyuan) Technology for Multiple Artificial Intelligence (AI) Chips

Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect IP provider enables faster AI training in cloud datacenter

CAMPBELL, Calif. – October 9, 2018 – Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip(NoC) interconnect intellectual property (IP), today announced that Enflame (Suiyuan) Technology has purchased multiple licenses of Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP for use as the on-chip communications backbone of their artificial intelligence (AI) training chips for use in cloud datacenters.

Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP is the only interconnect that would allow our AI chips to achieve their high bandwidth requirements while also meeting our QoS requirements. Using Arteris NoC technology allows our architecture to take maximum advantage of state-of-the-art HBM2 memories to avoid system-level data starvation, which is major problem with less efficient AI training chips.”
