Network-on-chip interconnect technology helps specialized semiconductor company increase complexity and functionality of new products.
CAMPBELL, Calif. — Sep. 6, 2016 — Arteris Inc., the innovative supplier of silicon-proven commercial system-on-chip (SoC) interconnect IP, today announced that Octasic, Inc., has licensed Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP for use in highly specialized systems-on-chip in tactical and industrial applications.
The number of cores and peripherals in our new SoC products and their associated requirements for massive and predictable data bandwidth made the on-chip interconnect a key design challenge in our project. The Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP has proven that it can reduce wire routing congestion while guaranteeing the bandwidth and latency of critical traffic in our design with minimal effort on our part.
