Arteris Press Releases

Arteris® IP FlexNoC® Interconnect Licensed for use in SK Telecom SAPEON AI Chips

Network-on-Chip interconnect IP optimizes on-chip dataflow and power consumption for flagship Korean artificial intelligence and machine learning processing platform.

CAMPBELL, Calif. – September 7, 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 South Korean telecommunications operator SK Telecom will use the Arteris IP FlexNoC interconnect IP in its next-generation SAPEON artificial intelligence (AI) systems-on-chip (SoCs).

Arteris IP is a critical ingredient in the success of our chip design not only for their state-of-the-art semiconductor IP but also for their insightful and professional local engineering support. The FlexNoC interconnect IP has been essential to our ability to more quickly innovate for the next-generation SAPEON design. In addition to providing the industry-leading NoC interconnect IP with optimizations targeted at artificial intelligence and machine learning workloads, the local Arteris IP engineering team was able to provide significant guidance on how the NoC could be configured to meet our architectural requirements. This allowed us to create a more performant system in less time than we expected."
