Blu Wireless Licenses Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect IP for HYDRA WiGig and 4G Backhaul Subsystems

Fully-featured network-on-chip (NoC) IP shortens design time, increases performance and reduces die cost and power consumption 

CAMPBELL, Calif. — November 3, 2015 —Arteris Inc., the inventor and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Blu Wireless Technology has licensed Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP for use in its HYDRA WiGig and 60GHz millimeter wave baseband IP.

Blu Wireless, based in Bristol, UK, designs and licenses semiconductor intellectual property to telecommunications semiconductor companies for gigabit rate wireless modems operating in the millimeter wave frequency bands.

Because we use a complex heterogeneous multiprocessing architecture, mixing fixed-function DSP blocks with highly optimized parallel vector DSPs, we required an interconnect that implements end-to-end quality of service guaranteeing our on-chip latency and bandwidth requirements. Arteris FlexNoC delivered this QoS while using less die area and power consumption than competing technologies.

Arteris FlexNoC Helps Enable Texas Instruments Wireless Connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT)

Network-on-chip interconnect enables complete family of industry’s lowest power RF devices for Zigbee® RF4CE™, Bluetooth® low energy and other IoT standards

CAMPBELL, California — February 25, 2015 — Arteris Inc., the inventor and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Texas Instruments (TI) has implemented Arteris® FlexNoC® fabric IP in its SimpleLink™ ultra-low power wireless MCU portfolio. The TI SimpleLink family is part of the industry’s broadest wireless connectivity portfolio of cost-effective, low-power solutions for communications in the Internet of Things (IoT).

FlexNoC’s power management features and low latency helped us create the lowest-power IoT communication devices in the world. Just as important were the business benefits: Using FlexNoC allowed us to create a small set of digital logic SoC dies that serve as the brains of more than one hundred different products, each customized for its particular market.

FlexNoC’s flexibility and automation, combined with our implementation of software-programmable on-chip firewalls and power disconnect features, enabled us to produce an entire product line with a minimal number of digital logic components.
