Optimizing NoC-Based Designs

May 5th, 2022 - By Paul Graykowski

Further optimization of RTL repartitioning with switching from crossbar interconnects to NoCs.

Semiconductor development is currently in a phase of rapid evolution driven by the combination of new technologies and methodologies. The technique of combining multiple functions into systems-on-chips (SoCs) is continuing to grow in complexity. Rapid advancement in new technologies for market segments like data centers, robotics, ADAS and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) are resulting in a new breed of SoCs. These fields demand designs that are maximized for both power and performance efficiency. Designers are finding that networks-on-chip (NoCs) provide the enabling technology to meet this demand and are accelerating the move away from crossbar interconnect technology.

Semiconductor Engineering: The High But Often Unnecessary Cost Of Coherence

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

The High But Often Unnecessary Cost Of Coherence

December 22nd, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

Cache coherency is expensive and provides little or negative benefit for some tasks. So why is it still used so frequently?


“Coherence is a contract between agents that says, ‘I promise you that I will always provide the latest data to you,'” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “It is mostly important when you have a lot of people sharing the same data set. Coherence between equal peers is very important and will not go away.”

Semiconductor Engineering: From Cloud To Cloudlets

Kurt Shuler, Vice President of Marketing at Arteris IP is quoted in this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

From Cloud To Cloudlets

August 17th, 2020 - By Ed Sperling

Why the intersection of 5G and the edge is driving a new compute model.

 
In the U.S., they’re using the higher S band, which is used for things like radar,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “In other parts of the world, they’re using much lower frequency bands, which is more useful. It could replace or augment what they already have on a cell phone. So in the United States, the use cases are largely around things like factories and automotive. Overseas, that’s much different.
 
One such use case involves industrial robots, Shuler said, where microcell chipsets are used to control and monitor the activities of those robots. Most of those are fixed robots, but response time is critical.
