Longer Chip Lifecycles Increase Security Threat

February 4th, 2021 - By Ed Sperling

Updates can change everything, whether it's a system or something connected to that system.


“With an SoC, you can use the firewalls in the NoC to quietly tag data and tell you if something is not right,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “But not everyone has the capability to do this. Some companies are more sophisticated about security than others. They look at the security tools for data at rest, such as keyed encryption. But today there is not much there for security around data movement.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Taming Non-Predictable Systems

Michael Frank, Fellow and System Architect at Arteris IP is quoted in this Semiconductor Engineering blog:

Taming Non-Predictable Systems

January 28th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

The non-predictable nature of most systems is not inherently bad, so long as it is understood and bounded — but that’s becoming a bigger challenge.

“Real-time is a ‘stretchable’ term,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “In general, it implies that a certain action is completed within a bounded time, with 100 % probability, as opposed to engineering schedules. For most real-time systems, the definition is not that strict. Some systems are fine if the average is within a certain window that meets the requirement, such as for video decoding. Other cases may look to see if the deadline will only be missed with a certain low random probability. Those systems may replace a missing result by a prediction/interpolation, such as dropped audio samples.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Roaring '20s For The Chip Industry

Isabelle Geday, Vice President and General Manager for the IP Deployment Division at Arteris IP is quoted in today's Semiconductor Engineering blog:

Roaring '20s For The Chip Industry

January 28th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

New markets, different architectures, and continued virtual work environments all point to positive and sustained growth.

These advanced technologies are changing the fabric of the industry. “Foundries will keep offering more and more design services,” says Isabelle Geday, vice president and general manager for the IP Deployment Division of Arteris IP. “They will become super design houses to help integration within the value chain for many system houses and Tier 2 IC companies.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Von Neumann Is Struggling

Michael Frank, Fellow and System Architect at Arteris IP is quoted in today's Semiconductor Engineering blog:

Von Neumann Is Struggling

January 18th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

The backbone of computing architecture for 75 years is being supplanted by more efficient, less general compute architecture.

“One of the problems is that CPUs are not really good at anything,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “CPUs are good at processing a single thread that has a lot of decisions in it. That is why you have branch predictors, and they have been the subject of research for many years.”
