Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect technology pioneer enables more scalable systems-on-chip(SoCs) with advanced quality of service (QoS).

Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of network-onchip (NoC) interconnect semiconductor intellectual property (IP) products, today announced that Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd has selected Arteris’ FlexNoC interconnect for system on chip (SoC) designs.

Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP enables SoC designers to more quickly create and verify complex SoCs that use any socket transaction protocol with any number of connected IP blocks, while offering lower power, higher memory bandwidth and optimized quality of service by individual connections. This may be expected to improve SoC performance, lowers SoC costs and enables rapid adoption of IP blocks communicating in a variety of protocols.

Traditional bus- and crossbar-based interconnects create serious problems for architects, digital and physical designers, and integrators. Unlike Arteris FlexNoC, these solutions require massive numbers of wires and metal traces, causing increased heat and power consumption, failed timing closure, and spaghetti-like routing congestion leading to increased die area and difficulty making changes for derivative chips or engineering change orders.

Samsung’s decision to further adopt Arteris technology will be a noteworthy example of our network on chip technology’s ability to scale for any size SoC and to use any socket protocol,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “Arteris FlexNoC simplifies and accelerates the interconnect design, verification, and back end processes, all while providing significant cost and performance benefits.
