GCT Semiconductor Licenses Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect IP for LTE digital baseband systems-on-chip (SoCs)
byOn Apr 26, 2016
Corporate-wide license enables low-power SoC design for multiple engineering teams
CAMPBELL, Calif. – April 26, 2016 – Arteris Inc., the inventor and industry leader in commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that GCT Semiconductor, a leading fabless designer and supplier of advanced 4G LTE semiconductor solutions, has licensed Arteris FlexNoC IP for use in its low power LTE digital baseband chipsets.
Because of its built-in power and clock domain automation capabilities, Arteris FlexNoC makes it easier for our engineering teams to make sophisticated SoCs with complex requirements for power consumption, performance and die area.
John Schlaefer, Chief Executive Officer GCT Semiconductor
GCT Semiconductor is a longtime Arteris IP customer, having first purchased Arteris IP in 2012. This renewal license enables GCT engineering teams to use Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP as the backbone on-chip interconnect for multiple SoCs throughout the corporation.
“We decided to standardize on Arteris FlexNoC IP corporate-wide because of its ability to reduce idle and active power consumption while being able to meet our quality of results requirements,” said John Schlaefer, Chief Executive Officer of GCT Semiconductor. “Because of its built-in power and clock domain automation capabilities, Arteris FlexNoC makes it easier for our engineering teams to make sophisticated SoCs with complex requirements for power consumption, performance and die area.”
“We are excited that GCT Semiconductor has chosen Arteris FlexNoC as their corporate-standard interconnect IP,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “GCT’s choice is validation that using Arteris IP is the fastest way to make low power systems-on-chip.”
Arteris, Inc. provides Network-on-Chip interconnect IP and tools to accelerate System-on-Chip semiconductor (SoC) assembly for a wide range of applications. Rapid semiconductor designer adoption by customers such as Samsung, Huawei / Hisilicon, Mobileye, Altera, and Texas Instruments has resulted in Arteris being the only semiconductor IP company to be ranked in the Inc. 500 and Deloitte Technology Fast 500 lists in 2012 and 2013. Customer results obtained by using the Arteris product line include lower power, higher performance, more efficient design reuse and faster SoC development, leading to lower development and production costs.
