SemiWiki: Arteris IP Folds in Magillem

Bernard Murphy (SemiWiki) gets an update from Kurt Shuler, vice president of Marketing at Arteris IP on the motivation behind the Arteris IP/Magillem merger.

Arteris IP Folds in Magillem. Perfect for SoC Integrators

February 18, 2021 - Bernard Murphy

Arteris IP and Magillem recently tied the knot, creating a merger of Network-on-Chip (NoC) and related Intellectual Property (IP) with a platform known for IP-XACT based SoC integration and related support. This is interesting to me because I’m familiar with products and people in both companies. I talked to Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing to understand the rationale behind the acquisition.

Arteris® IP Adds a Record 28 New Licensees in 2020

Network-on-Chip (NoC) semiconductor IP growth driven by customer development of new automotive, machine learning, 5G & data center system-on-chip (SoCs).

CAMPBELL, Calif. – February 17, 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 the company added 28 new licensees for its Arteris® IP Ncore®, FlexNoC®, CodaCache®, AI Package, Resilience Package, and PIANO® Interconnect IP products in 2020. With the addition of these 28 new licensees, the cumulative number of Arteris IP semiconductor IP licensees throughout the company’s history reached 159. SoC design starts throughout the company’s history exceeded 500 chip projects. Furthermore, two large semiconductor vendor customers signed multi-year licensing deals with the company.

Despite the COVID headwinds, Arteris IP had a strong year based on both technology delivery and customer acquisition gains. Our focus on automotive, machine learning, 5G and data center applications has provided increased competitive value to our customers, who rewarded Arteris IP with an unprecedented number of SoC design wins.”

Semiconductor Engineering: An Acquisition To Streamline SoC Integration

An Acquisition To Streamline SoC Integration

February 16th, 2021 - By Kurt Shuler

Bringing order to the potential chaos of trying to combine IP from multiple suppliers.


Late last year Arteris IP closed its acquisition of Magillem assets, bringing together two companies with a single mission: To support integration of systems-on-chip (SoCs) at the interconnect fabric level and the data integration level. The value of joining forces has been appealing for some time. Since the early days of both companies, we’ve been working with mutual customers and integration teams within those customers. It’s not surprising that needs and goals look similar across all of those teams: High performance, low power and low impact communication across the SoC, efficiently integrating IPs from multiple suppliers, each configured correctly to that communication backbone. And all in as little schedule time as possible. Combining forces just made sense.

Semiconductor Engineering: Bridging The Gap Between Smart Cities And Autonomous Vehicles

Kurt Shuler, VP of Marketing at Arteris IP is quoted in this Semiconductor Engineering blog:

Bridging The Gap Between Smart Cities And Autonomous Vehicles

February 4th, 2021 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

Communication, security, and power issues still need to be solved, but there is progress.


“It’s important to remember that a lot of power consumption is from the electric motor, so being able to optimize traffic and traffic flows will make a difference,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “In terms of vehicle infrastructure, having the big Waze brain be able to actually direct your car and optimize all of that would reduce power. It’s like fleet management for FedEx, but for everybody.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Longer Chip Lifecycles Increase Security Threat

Longer Chip Lifecycles Increase Security Threat

February 4th, 2021 - By Ed Sperling

Updates can change everything, whether it's a system or something connected to that system.


“With an SoC, you can use the firewalls in the NoC to quietly tag data and tell you if something is not right,” said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “But not everyone has the capability to do this. Some companies are more sophisticated about security than others. They look at the security tools for data at rest, such as keyed encryption. But today there is not much there for security around data movement.”

Arteris® IP FlexNoC® Interconnect and Resilience Package Supports Socionext's 5nm Automotive Chip Production

Automotive chip design leader standardizes on Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect IP for multiple ISO 26262-compliant systems-on-chip (SoCs)

CAMPBELL, Calif. and YOKOHAMA, Japan– February 4, 2021 – Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that Socionext has implemented Arteris® FlexNoC® interconnect IP and the accompanying Resilience Package in multiple automotive chips, including an automotive SoC fabricated using 5nm semiconductor process technology.

We are able to more efficiently design large scale automotive chips because we are able to see early in the design process the layout impacts of our SoC and NoC architecture choices. This is especially important when using leading edge 5nm semiconductor process technologies. Furthermore, our SoC functional safety architecture has been enhanced by the novel technologies in the FlexNoC interconnect IP Resilience Package, allowing us to quickly tailor safety mechanisms for the desired ISO 26262 ASIL to meet our customers’ demanding schedules."

Semiconductor Engineering: Taming Non-Predictable Systems

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

Taming Non-Predictable Systems

January 28th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

The non-predictable nature of most systems is not inherently bad, so long as it is understood and bounded — but that’s becoming a bigger challenge.

“Real-time is a ‘stretchable’ term,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “In general, it implies that a certain action is completed within a bounded time, with 100 % probability, as opposed to engineering schedules. For most real-time systems, the definition is not that strict. Some systems are fine if the average is within a certain window that meets the requirement, such as for video decoding. Other cases may look to see if the deadline will only be missed with a certain low random probability. Those systems may replace a missing result by a prediction/interpolation, such as dropped audio samples.”
