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.

More NoC Wisdom

October 7th, 2021 - By Kurt Shuler

Managing expectations for disruptive technologies.


A common experience for anyone promoting a disruptive technology is that prospective customers understand that what is being offered is different. Still, without a familiar reference to compare, they extrapolate expectations unreliably. Thinking of a switch to network-on-chip (NoC)? Here is wisdom for review.

Semiconductor Engineering: NoC Experiences From The Trenches

NoC Experiences From The Trenches

September 28th, 2021 - By Kurt Shuler

When evaluating a new technology, don't aim for a simple 1-to-1 replacement.


Network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect as an alternative to traditional crossbars is already well-proven, but there are still plenty of design teams on the cusp of a transition or who maybe do not yet see a need for a change. As with a switch to any new technology, the first hurdles are often simply misconceptions. When new users first evaluate any new technology, they often make the mistake of attempting a 1-to-1 replacement of their old technology without considering all the new things the new capabilities bring to them.

Read on for some examples I have seen during my years at Arteris IP and check out our customer list, which includes the best-of-the-best in many domains implementing small to large designs.

Semiconductor Engineering: Software-Hardware Co-Design Becomes Real

Michael Frank, Fellow and System Architect at Arteris IP is quoted in this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

Software-Hardware Co-Design Becomes Real

September 27th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

Automatic mapping of software onto existing hardware, or using software to drive hardware design, are highly desired but very difficult.


“Hardware/software co-design has been happening for quite a while,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “People have been trying to estimate the behavior of the platform and evaluation its performance using real software for quite a while. The industry has been building better simulators, such as Gem5, and Qemu. This has extended into systems where accelerators have been included, where you build models of accelerators and offload your CPUs by running parts of the code on the accelerator."

SemiWiki: More Tales from the NoC Trenches

Bernard Murphy (SemiWiki), gets an update from Kurt Shuler, VP of Marketing and William Tseng, AE Manager at Arteris IP, about a few more misconceptions in early NoC evaluation. 

More Tales from the NoC Trenches

September 23, 2021 - Bernard Murphy

Science texts like to present the evolution of knowledge as step-function transitions, from ignorance to wisdom. We used to think the sun revolved around the earth. Then Galileo appeared, and we instantly realized that the earth revolves around the sun. But reality is always messier, as Galileo understood all too well. The transition from darkness to light is often bumpy. The same can be said for adopting new technologies. There may be mechanical challenges along the way, but the biggest barriers are often our own preconceptions. I talked to William Tseng (AE Manager) and Kurt Shuler (VP Marketing) at Arteris IP to share more tales from the trenches on this learning curve in NoC adoption.
