Arteris® IP FlexNoC® Interconnect and AI Package Licensed by Blue Ocean Smart System for AI Chips

State-of-the-art Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect enables optimized write broadcast dataflow for AI inference and training hardware accelerator chips

CAMPBELL, Calif. – May 19, 2020 – Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that Blue Ocean Smart System has licensed Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect IP and the accompanying AI Package for use in next generation systems-on-chip (SoC) that hardware accelerate artificial intelligence (AI) neural network inference and training.

From prior experience, I knew that Arteris interconnect IP was the best solution to construct complex high frequency and high bandwidth on-chip interconnects that were backend friendly for easier timing closure. The addition of the AI Package allows us to finely tune our chip architecture using multicast write semantics which greatly reduce off-chip memory accesses while using little die area and consuming much less power. Our use of Arteris FlexNoC and the AI Package has been key to turning our architectural dreams into system-on-chip reality.”
