New! Arteris IP Technical Paper, Re-Architecting SoCs for the AI Era

Kurt Shuler, VP of Marketing at Arteris IP has written this 10-page technical paper titled, "Re-Architecting SoCs for the AI Era".

August 29, 2019 - by Kurt Shuler

Abstract:
The growth of artificial intelligence (AI) demands that semiconductor companies re-architect their system on chip (SoC) designs to provide more scalable levels of performance, flexibility, efficiency, and integration. From the edge to data centers, AI applications require a rethink of memory structures, the numbers and types of heterogeneous processors and hardware accelerators, and careful consideration of how the dataflow is enabled and managed between the various high-performance IP blocks.

EE Times article, The Gatekeeper of a Successful Design is the Interconnect

K. Charles Janac, President and CEO, at Arteris IP, authored this article on how an effective interconnect makes delivering a complex SoC easier, more predictable, and less costly.

An interconnect handles various types of traffic inside an SoC and is a mechanism for effective IP block integration. The interconnect is the most configurable IP in the SoC — typically changing many times during a project and nearly always changing between projects. It also plays a vital role in security and functional safety because it carries most of the SoC data and contains nearly all the SoC’s long wires and system-level services, including quality of service (QoS), visibility, physical awareness, and power management. The interconnect enables cache coherency in multiprocessor SoCs, high-performance and bandwidth levels in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) automotive chips and networking SoCs, and ultra-low power in long-running consumer devices.

EE Times article, SoC Interconnect: Don't DIY!

Kurt Shuler, VP Marketing at Arteris IP, explains why a DIY approach to building your own configurable interconnect IP product is not as easy as one may think.

The recent market consolidation might have some companies considering whether this is a do-it-yourself (DIY) project that your company should consider taking on. Whether it’s a simple crossbar switch or a full-function network-on-chip (NoC) architecture for advanced SoCs, all that’s needed are the right people with the right knowledge and a big budget; eventually, it could happen. But the question isn’t can you do it? It’s should you do it?
