Many Chiplet Challenges Ahead

April 12th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

Assembling systems from physical IP gaining mindshare, but there are technical, business and logistical issues that need to be resolved before this will work.

“The size of the bits and pieces is an issue,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “It is perhaps less of an issue with chiplets or 2.5D, where things are mounted on a substrate, but it adds additional challenges for 3D. We are no longer dealing with gravel. It is grains of sand, or even dust specs. It’s more robust to build boards.”

Decisions that affect how, when, and where data gets processed.

"On the chip side, it’s an engineering discipline. On the other side are the algorithm experts who understand what the masks are and what they want to do,” said Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP.

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: CEO Outlook: 2021

K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris IP comments in today's Semiconductor Engineering blog:

CEO Outlook: 2021 

January 4th, 2021 - By Ed Sperling

The semiconductor industry will look and behave differently this year, and not just because of the pandemic.


"Chiplets will become increasingly important", said K. Charles Janac, president and CEO of Arteris IP. "Some will be for specific functions. Some will require specialized processors. But to make all of this work, the interconnects will need to become even more sophisticated than they are today. The good thing about the interconnect is there are almost unlimited innovation possibilities. There are a lot of ways to add value.”
