Network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect enables ASIC-like performance for Speedster7t FPGA family
CAMPBELL, Calif. — June. 18, 2019 — Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that Achronix Semiconductor Corporation has licensed Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP for use in its new Speedster7t FPGA family – based on a new, highly optimized architecture – that goes beyond traditional FPGA solutions featuring ASIC-like performance, FPGA adaptability and enhanced functionality to streamline designs.
Our new Speedster7t FPGA family requires extremely high on-chip bandwidth and advanced dataflow arbitration to make possible ASIC-class machine learning processing. The Arteris FlexNoC IP is the optimal interconnect to meet these demands, especially with the advanced process technology nodes and multi-gigahertz frequencies we are dealing with.”
Steve Mensor, Vice President of Marketing, Achronix
Achronix, headquartered in Silicon Valley, specializes in FPGA-based hardware accelerator devices and high-performance embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP that serve a broad range of computing, networking, and storage systems for interface-protocol bridging/switching, algorithm acceleration, and high-speed packet-processing applications. The company’s latest Speedster7t FPGA family is specifically designed for Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML) and high-bandwidth workloads, featuring a revolutionary new 2D NoC and a high-density array of new machine learning processors (MLP).
“Our new Speedster7t FPGA family requires extremely high on-chip bandwidth and advanced dataflow arbitration to make possible ASIC-class machine learning processing,” said Steve Mensor, vice president of marketing at Achronix. “The Arteris FlexNoC IP is the optimal interconnect to meet these demands, especially with the advanced process technology nodes and multi-gigahertz frequencies we are dealing with.”
“Achronix’s choice of Arteris FlexNoC is proof of our IP’s ability to enable the highest possible bandwidth dataflow using the latest process nodes running at extremely high frequencies,” said K. Charles Janac, president and CEO of Arteris IP. “Arteris IP is the only IP company continually providing unique interconnect technologies that accelerate the development of these types of complex machine learning and artificial intelligence chips.”
