EE Times article, "Licensing Interconnect IP for Fun & Profit"

Kurt Shuler, VP Marketing at Arteris IP, authored this EE Times article discussing NoC interconnect Build or Buy.

February 25, 2021 - by Kurt Shuler

Why do we buy instead of build? Because the guys at the factory know what they’re doing.

The big question then becomes, which parts do we design in-house, and which do we bring in from outside? That’s a whiteboard architectural discussion, which can be heated and emotional. Engineers want to build stuff — that’s what they do. Managers want to get a working product out the door as economically as possible — that’s what they do. If the engineers want to make, and the managers want to buy, who wins? Who gets to make that call, and how do they justify the decision?

EE Times article, The Age of the Monster Chip

K. Charles Janac, President and CEO, at Arteris IP, authored this article on what is now defined as a "Monster Chip".

September 19, 2019 - by K. Charles Janac

What are the system designs that require a leap in SoC complexity? It’s not only big datacenter artificial intelligence (AI) chips, but also autonomous vehicles such as cars, trucks and drones; they are self-landing, reusable rockets; they are medical devices carrying out remote diagnostics; and they are connected machine tool controllers supporting smart manufacturing.

These chips are starting to be referred to as “Monster Chips” because of both the size and complexity.
