Why The Network-on-Chip Has Displaced Crossbar Switches at Scale

May 13th, 2021 - By Benoit de Lescure

The NoC interconnect is the SoC architecture.

In my first article of this series about interconnect design, I explained why on-chip communication has become central to a system-on-chip (SoC) architecture. These architectural decisions determine bandwidth, throughput, quality-of-service (QoS), power usage, safety, and cost. Here, the difference between a world-class achievement and a shortcoming starts with the communication architecture choice.

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

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.
