How NoCs Ace Power Management and Functional Safety in SoCs

September 15th, 2021 - By Benoit de Lescure

The NoC interconnect is the SoC architecture.

This third article highlights how NoC technology provides capabilities like power management and functional safety that are not possible with older crossbar-based interconnect technologies. For design teams creating modern SoCs, whether large datacenter AI accelerators or power-sipping IoT sensors, NoC interconnect technology is key to implementing these SoC architectures and optimizing the dataflow within them.

Semiconductor Engineering: Long-Haul Trucking With Fewer Drivers

Long-Haul Trucking With Fewer Drivers

September 13th, 2021 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

The economics are compelling, but technology challenges abound that are unique to this market.


Interestingly, when Intel-owned Mobileye started out with its technology, the first market was aftermarket selling to trucks. “The idea was that — and it was true — if you purchase this Mobileye system and install that in your fleet of trucks, your insurance would go down,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “That was the value proposition, and it retrofitted these capabilities onto these trucks. There’s a lot of liability with these trucks when there’s an accident. That’s why companies like FedEx Ground, and Amazon, instead of doing like UPS and saying, ‘These trucks are part of our fleet. We own them,’ they’re independent contractors. And so if your Amazon delivery or your FedEx Ground delivery crashes at FedEx, it’s the responsibility of the contractor because of the liability around that. There are incentives in the economics for these kinds of things to add the capabilities.”

Arteris® IP FlexNoC® Interconnect Licensed for use in SK Telecom SAPEON AI Chips

Network-on-Chip interconnect IP optimizes on-chip dataflow and power consumption for flagship Korean artificial intelligence and machine learning processing platform.

CAMPBELL, Calif. – September 7, 2021 – Arteris IP, a leading provider of network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect and other intellectual property (IP) technology that manages the on-chip communications in system-on-chip (SoC) semiconductor devices, today announced that South Korean telecommunications operator SK Telecom will use the Arteris IP FlexNoC interconnect IP in its next-generation SAPEON artificial intelligence (AI) systems-on-chip (SoCs).

Arteris IP is a critical ingredient in the success of our chip design not only for their state-of-the-art semiconductor IP but also for their insightful and professional local engineering support. The FlexNoC interconnect IP has been essential to our ability to more quickly innovate for the next-generation SAPEON design. In addition to providing the industry-leading NoC interconnect IP with optimizations targeted at artificial intelligence and machine learning workloads, the local Arteris IP engineering team was able to provide significant guidance on how the NoC could be configured to meet our architectural requirements. This allowed us to create a more performant system in less time than we expected."

Semiconductor Engineering: Steering The Semiconductor Industry

Isabelle Geday, General Manager of Arteris IP Deployment and Kurt Shuler, Vice President of Marketing at Arteris IP are both quoted in this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

Steering The Semiconductor Industry

August 26th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

What does it take to get a new language, tool, or methodology established in the semiconductor industry? Disruption has rarely worked.


“Everything we do is based on IP-XACT IEEE 1685 standard,” says Isabelle Geday, general manager of Arteris IP Deployment. “It is our duty and our prerogative to train people, as well as we can, on the standard — its existence, its benefits, and the way to use it. By doing this, and by making the effort to do it well, we promote the standard, and long-term we promote a best methodology on the market for the next generation of SoCs. Thankfully, there is good alignment between IP providers, SoC designers, and EDA tool companies.

“I was involved in ISO 26262, which is a functional safety standard for semiconductors and other electronics,” says Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “In that case there was an existing infrastructure for training, as well as certification companies. But when it comes to the semiconductor industry, there has to be a certain critical mass before it makes sense to invest in a Udemy course, or something like that.

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.

Who Owns In-Chip Monitoring Data?

August 10th, 2021 - By Bryon Moyer

Rules are still being formulated even though the technology is already deployed.


“There’s this joint ownership of the data, with different people at different layers doing different things with the data for their own purposes,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. Contracts and regulations further complicate things.
