Why Automate Traceability?

October 13th, 2021 - By Vincent Thibaut


Over the years, Arteris IP has worked with several aerospace, transportation and automotive partners on design systems for avionics, space image processing and processing for scientific payloads. More recently, complex advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) projects at various levels of autonomy have been added to the list. One thing common between all these projects has been the tight coupling between system-level specification and all aspects of software and hardware from multiple suppliers and integrators, along with the very tight demands on safety and reliability.

EDA Cafe: What Does MBSE Have to Do with SoCs?

What Does MBSE Have to Do with SoCs?

August 17th, 2021 - By Vincent Thibaut


In technology, the only constant is change, sometimes at a dizzying pace. One emerging trend is how product specifications, additions and changes are passed onto system-on-chip (SoC) design teams. Traditionally, this transfer is done by exchanging documents, models (perhaps Simulink) and some form of written use-case descriptions. However, this process is very cumbersome, subjective and error-prone. It is also a very poor method for documenting and tracking revisions required by agile design teams employing best practices. It may not be a problem when building catalog products, but the world has changed.

EDA Cafe: Arteris IP Extends IP-XACT to UVM Testbenches

Arteris IP Extends IP-XACT to UVM Testbenches

July 2, 2021 - By Vincent Thibaut


To be clear, the goal here is not to autogenerate the internals of the complex test sequences. However, the IP-XACT platform from Arteris IP does handle register sequences. Instead, view the universal verification methodology (UVM) testbench as part of an assembly of the device under test (DUT), plus many complex VIPs. IP-XACT lends itself nicely to this concept. To be effective, packaging needs several extensions so that configuration can be managed from the IP-XACT level. Testbenches will be challenged to include more and more VIPs as design complexity grows. There are compelling reasons to explore IP-XACT packaging for VIPs.

Semiconductor Engineering: Shifting Toward Data-Driven Chip Architectures

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

Shifting Toward Data-Driven Chip Architectures

June 16th, 2021 - By Ed Sperling and Ann Steffora Mutschler

Rethinking how to improve performance and lower power in semiconductors.

“There are dynamic routing opportunities at runtime,” said K. Charles Janac, chairman and CEO of Arteris IP. “We’ve always resisted runtime dynamic routing because there are issues with verification. If you have billions of transactions, the verification is much simpler if you’re forcing the traffic to go onto a single connection every time. But there are opportunities for easing that in the future and have the NoC essentially be able to reroute traffic dynamically based on some sort of routing controller, which in turn is controlled by some global software."
