Semiconductor Engineering: New Design Approaches For Automotive

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

New Design Approaches For Automotive

July 1st, 2021 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

OEMs steer toward executable specs using model-based systems engineering.


“If you’re creating an anti-lock braking system or a windshield washer or something like that, it’s relatively simple and you don’t have to spend much time with these tools to be able to come up with that model,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “But once you get to something really complex like a system on chip — just like with creating SystemC models or the like — you could spend more time than you would on the RTL, or on writing the specs for the RTL, the requirements and use cases for the specs for the RTL, or a SysML model.”

Semiconductor Engineering: IP-XACT Is Back, For All The Right Reasons

Vincent Thibaut, Director of IP Deployment Product Strategy at Arteris IP authored this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

IP-XACT Is Back, For All The Right Reasons

July 1st, 2021 - By Vincent Thibaut

Providing collaborating teams a single and reliable source of truth for the design.

The intent behind IP-XACT has always been to provide a bridge between system-on-chip (SoC) assembly and larger considerations. This standard has additionally been used to adapt to multi-sourced and constantly evolving intellectual property (IP) that design and product teams build, often in different companies. Moreover, it was used to interface with product development beyond the specialized needs of logic design. Admittedly, it was developed early, offering a solution to a problem not yet widely recognized. It was early, but it was not wrong. Market changes are pushing more and more SoC builders in this direction in mature and emerging semiconductor and systems companies. Production needs are finally catching up with this standard.

Semiconductor Engineering: Good Vs. Bad Acquisitions

K. Charles Janac, President and CEO at Arteris IP is quoted in this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

Good Vs. Bad Acquisitions

October 7th, 2020 - By Ed Sperling

M&A begins to ramp up, but not all of them will work.

Making acquisitions is one thing, but it’s the result afterwards is that that really matters,” said K. Charles Janac, chairman and CEO of Arteris IP. “If your company culture is very different from any other company culture, that makes it much more difficult. We’ve seen that with some acquisitions that have not been very profitable, and the company may end up divesting.”

Arteris IP’s pending acquisition of Magillem Design Services is aimed at expanding its footprint beyond the network on chip into what Janac calls SoC assembly. Magillem can package IP in an SoC into an IP-XACT format, which paves the way for uniform communication in an SoC or an advanced package.
